Possible bug in Inspector w/Copy Paste & returns

I don't know if this is a bug (couldn't find it by searching) or standard operation procedure.  If it appears to be a bug I'll report it properly.

 

Windows, 7 & 8, FM Pro Adv 16 (latest update).

 

Consider the follow simple calculation:

Case(JOBS::Type="Heat";

     "Residential";

     "Commercial"

     )

Formatted with returns for easier reading (or imagine a long complicated Let function).

 

I'm in layout mode talking specifically about the 'Hide Object When' or 'Tooltip' edit boxes in the Inspector.

I tab to or click-select, the Edit Box, Ctrl +A (to copy all) to copy the expression-it does copy the whole expression.  If I then go to another (or even the same) 'Hide Object When' or 'Tooltip' edit box, and then Ctrl+V to paste, it only pastes the first line of the calculation up to the return.

 

If I tab/click and open the the 'Edit Calculation' box, then paste, it pastes the entire calculation.

 

But, if I use the same calculation, no returns, like this:

Case(JOBS::Type="Heat";"Residential";"Commercial")

with no returns, I can paste that into the Edit Box with keyboard commands only.

 

Just wondering what others think/experience.  I do like keyboard commands and not opening the 'Edit Calculation' box, but I also like easier to read calculations.

Thanks

Steve
