Calculated Placeholders in Find Mode

Hi,

 

I am using records in a related table to store placeholder text for localization purposes.

 

Placeholders for layout fields of the primary table use a calculation (e.g. related table::placeholder[x] ).   The "Show placeholder in Find mode" option is checked.

 

This works well in Browse mode but not in Find mode.  Is this expected behaviour?

 

I can work around this by using global fields/variables but that adds a lot of unnecessary overhead.
