FMPA 16: Problem with Layout Objects window

In FileMaker Pro Advanced 16, there is a problem with the new layout objects palette.

 

Please see attached screenshot.

 

When showing a related field, the layout objects window only shows THE SECOND HALF of the relationship, which is the field name itself. But it doesn't actually show the FIRST HALF of the relationship... which is the relationship name.

 

In order for the layout objects window to be a truly effective tool for us, we need to see the ENTIRE FIELD NAME (which includes BOTH the relationship AND the field name).

 

When creating complex databases (that are beyond the beginner level), the same field might appear in multiple different places on the layout... but shown through the viewpoint of multiple different relationships. Therefore, we need to see the ENTIRE FIELD NAME -- both the relationship AND the field name -- in order to distinguish which field name we are ACTUALLY looking at!

 

Please and thank you. This is a super-high priority for us.

 

Thank you,

Scott
