Hello my dear FM-developing colleagues,

 

Has it maybe always bugged you that you can't get at the script name when debugging scripts? or that although you can edit the script content you can't rename the script, without searching for the script in the Script Workspace?

 

Well, I'd like to share a discovery with you:

 

You CAN rename scripts in the editing window

You can get at the script name from a script editing window using the Rename Script command on the Scripts menu!

 

This function is even available in fm14(.0.5)! But it is sadly documented nowhere in the FileMaker help

 

For over a year we have been wasting time switching to the script workspace to edit the name!

 

Happy and efficient FileMaking

 

MrWatson
