Automatically Evaluate

Is anyone else being driven to distraction the way this decides to keep switching itself on?


We've been working on insurance based reports all week with some pretty complex SQL, upon opening the data viewer to review/test a new or existing calculation within it and having closed Edit Expression with Automatically Evaluate deselected, it has decided to switch itself on again, hence complex SQL evaluating itself and time to do something else like type a question here.


Personally, I believe this should be in Preferences to set the default as on or off and it should honour this setting. The hit to productivity due to this current behaviour isn't funny.


Yes, I will be posting this as a suggestion to FileMaker - OK, calculation finished, can get back to work.
