Bug? User able to access fields not editable in Browse Mode

Product and Version: Filemaker 15 (all versions), Filemaker 16 (all versions).

OS and Version: Windows 7, Windows 10, Sierra (10.12).

 

Description: On a layout with no fields that can be entered/edited in Browse Mode, a user can be left with access to a related field in a portal and edit it if the script step ‘Go to Portal Row[Select:Off]’ is the last script step used in a script.

 

I am well aware what the ‘Select’ option is designed to do, but does it not seem strange that in doing this when a field is set to not be editable in ‘Browse Mode’, it makes the ‘Field Entry’ feature in the inspector somewhat redundant in this case.

 

I have attached a file to hopefully easily demonstrate my concerns.

 

Cheers,
