Summary

Popovers do not open with a Go To Object or Go To Field request from a Script

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13

Operating system version

OS X 10.9

Description of the issue

Webdirect Popovers do not open with a Go To Object or Go To Field request from a Script in a browser. This works fine within FileMaker, but does not work with WebDirect, but it's supposed to work, according to the documentation.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Create a popover button with a named object in it
2) I hide the button, but that isn't required
3) Create a button that calls a script with a Go To Object script step.
$) Within FileMaker, the popover opens. Using WebDirect, it does not.

Expected result

The popover should open.

Actual result

Nothing happens.

Workaround

No workaround except to use the popover button directly, which I don't want to do.
