      Summary

      Searching scripts leaves all folders expanded - now also on Mac OS

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      Mac OS, WIndows

      Description of the issue

      If you type something into the scripts search box all relevant folders stay open (expanded) after the search input is cleared. This is a new behaviour on Mac OS in 14, on windows this has always been the case.

      If you have a lot of scripts in nested folders this is an absolute nightmare and renders the search pretty much useless. On Windows it is even more tragic as there is no option+close action which also collapses all containing folders.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      - on a Mac open a database witch a good amount of scripts in nested folders
      - collapse all script folders
      - type a letter into the script name search box
      - clear the search box

      Expected result

      folder open/closed status is restored as it is in FileMaker 13

      Actual result

      all folders which contain at least a scripts that uses the typed letter stay open

      Workaround

      select all items in the scripts pane, type option+arrow_left to collapse folder at all levels. this can take over minute which is another bug in my eyes...
