in FM 15 it was possible to comment out a script step by preceding a script step with //. I migrated to FM 16 but can't find that option anymore. Please advise what is the best way of commenting out a script step.
As I use it everyday, it is the same way. Command or Control + "/".
Are you on Windows?
thanks, On Mac OS X. The keyboard shortcut works on Mac. There is however no menu option to add comments.
To add comments? It's the # key.
There is a menu command in the Scripts menu when in the workspace to comment out a script.
You can still deactivate _parts of a formula_ using the '//'
For deactivating script steps, the MBS pluging is a real time saver - it adds a contextual menue item for this (macOS)...
Here a screenshot of the contextual menu in FileMaker provided by MBS FileMaker Plugin:
It's localized, so text may be different for you.
Shift and # works for me.
