Summary

Serious omission in FileMaker 14: Can't tell which script parameter is attached to a button's script

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14.0.1

Operating system version

OS X 10.10.3

Description of the issue

There is a very serious omission in FileMaker 14, which is completely hindering our FileMaker development work. In ALL PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF FILEMAKER, we could double-click on a button, and see what script parameter (if any) is attached to the button's "Perform Script" functionality. This made it absolutely simple to work with buttons which had script attached to them. But this functionality has now been removed in FileMaker 14, and now requires us to spend extra time going into a SECONDARY SCREEN to see this information. This information needs to be brought back to the PRIMARY SCREEN. Please see 2 screenshots below. The first screenshot is from the superior FileMaker 13 product line. The second screenshot is from the inferior FileMaker 14 product line.
