And adding the worlds smallest demo file:-)
Open it in 16 and se the properties of the field and then try in an older version of FileMaker, 14 or 15.

Thank you for your posts.
New to FileMaker Pro 16 is the Layout Objects window that allows you to view all objects. While in Layout Mode, pull down the View menu and select "Layout Objects". With your sample file, expand the "Grouped Button" and select "Edit Box (Field)". The Inspector will then show you the attributes of the field.

Thanks for noting that. It helps.
Feedback: It's less convenient. I'm looking at Data Inspector and expect to see the table::field name in the "Display data from" box. Now, to see the table:field name, we must open or switch to Layout Objects Inspector, then must click the disclosure triangle, then must click on "Edit Box" in the list. Why not display the field behind the button in Data Inspector?
The Layout Objects inspector is great, but it does take up screen "real estate". I won't have it always open when working on my 13" MacBook Pro monitor.
