Product and version

FileMaker Pro 15.0.1 and 14.0.5

OS and version

OS X Yosemite 10.10.5


iMac Retina 5K 27''


When modifying an existing calculation, if the formula contain multiple lines, the content of the formula is flickering during predictive entering. It may took some seconds, resulting a very painful coding.

How to replicate

1. Within the calculation dialog box (from a calculation field or Set variable step or so on...) set a such formula :

List ( <Field 1>


       <Field 2>


       <Field 3>


       <Field 4>


       <Field 5>


2. Confirm the calculation dialog box

3. Return back in the formula

4. Try to modify some field reference in the formula, by entering the first letter of a field and let FileMaker do the predictive completion.



It may be OS X Yosemite only (not sure)
