FMPA 16.0.3 crashes when line break makes script longer than window

I have a script that is 45 lines long, and the Script Workspace just happens to be tall enough for 46 lines.

 

When I insert a new line with a comment, as soon as I get to the end of the line typing, FMPA crashes. I get a beach ball and have to Force Quit. FMPA 16.0.3.302 on MacOS 10.12.6

 

I've been able to repeat this multiple times, and when I resize the SW to be shorter than the script, this error does not occur. I can attach a screenshot of the error but it occurs regularly.

 

To reproduce:

1. Open a script that is X lines long, where the entire script fits on the screen

2. Resize the SW window so it has room for 1 more line, but not 2 more lines

3. Create a new comment* and keep typing in the comment until reaching the end of the line. (*Might need to be inside an If statement)

 

Expected results:

The comment line expands to a second line

 

Actual results:

The program hangs.

 

Workaround:

Reduce SW window height before adding comment when script length approaches height of SW.
