Summary

Script Definition by Duplication does not allow editing script name

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.10.4

Description of the issue

When defining a script while in the process of creating a button, or setting a ScriptTrigger -- if the script is created by duplicating an existing script, there is NO opportunity to rename the script while you are editing it. You are stuck with the name 'Blah blah Copy', which you must then later find in the Script Workspace and edit there.

Steps to reproduce the problem

In layout, make a new button, or set up a new ScriptTrigger. In the Action or Select Script box, choose a script similar to what you want, duplicate it, and then select Edit from the gear. You are able to edit the script to make it appropriate for your new button, but you cannot change the name of the script, which is whatever the original was with "Copy" stuck on the end.

Expected result

In FMP 13 there was a box to allow editing of the script name, not just the steps.

Actual result

If you are duplicating you can't change the name unless you go back and do it later.
