New Behaviour: Text - Button = grouped Item

hello everyone

 

In past versions of fmp including 15:

It was easy to take a text object, add a button and change formatting later

 

since FMP 16:

Once I attach a Button action to a text object it is grouped. This means to change formatting on the object I have to ungroup the object, remember which script was referenced or which single step I had configured there to manually reattach that once I am done with formatting the item.

 

This is really inconvenient and causes a lot of extra work when maintaining a historically grown file!

 

Is this the intended new behaviour or is this a bug?

 

Anybody have a workaround?
