Product and version: FileMaker 17.0.1.143 (Advanced)

OS and version: macOS 10.13.4

Hardware: 2016 15" MBP

 

Description: I have multiple buttons on a portal row, but behavior is inconsistent. Sometimes clicking the button doesn't do anything, despite having a script action attached. The button clearly registers the click (the button darkens with the on click style), but nothing happens. Even with the script debugger window open - it's obvious the script isn't being called. If I explicitly select the portal row before clicking the button - it always works. Otherwise it only seems to work about a 3rd of the time. Clicking the button twice always works.

 

How to replicate: It happens about 60% of the time, but I don't have a consistent way to make it happen.

Workaround (if any): Click the button twice if the first attempt to work.
