FMPA 16.0v1, Mac OS X 10.11.6. In the Script Workspace when editing an active script, typing into the search field (above the list of scripts in the left-hand pane) causes the current script tab to go blank, as if no script were being actively edited.

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch FMP 16 and open any file that has any script defined.

2. Make a script active by double-clicking it in the left-hand pane of scripts. Note that the script appears in the main pane as editable.

3. Click into the search field above the list of scripts and start typing to find a specific script.

 

Result: The tab of the script you are editing goes blank, as if no script was selected for editing.

 

Desired behavior: The script you are editing should continue to display as you type to filter the list of scripts in the left-hand pane. Note that FM 14 and 15 both behaved this way. The result in 16 is new.
