The Script workspace preference pane of FileMaker 15 allows us to not include new scripts on Scripts menu by default. However, if the script is created directly from a button in layout Mode, this preference does not apply.

How to replicate

Make sure you have unchecked the preference that include new scripts in scripts menu : using the Script Workspace, menu command DISPLAY > SCRIPT WORKSPACE PREFERENCES…

Back in layout Mode, create a button and a new script using the button's configuration panel.

Workaround (long version) : close all the dialogs, go to the script workspace and using the appropriate menu, exclude the new script of scripts menu.
