Removing checkmarks in the script management pane is not removing the script names from the drop down menu. Is there a new preference setting or option that I am missing? This is happening across several databases.
I just tested that with my databases and unchecking them in the script management removed them from the dropdown menu. If you have them in Folders, don't just uncheck the folder, open it and uncheck them in the folder as well.
With having FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced you can turn on Advanced options and make a custom menu to hide/remove the Scripts menu all together.

I concur with tsplatypus's response. The only way I can think of that would give you the outcome you describe when you think you have unchecked a script is confusion over folders and their contents.
Thanks for the response and I agree. It should not happen. However, it is. All folders are unchecked and all scripts are unchecked as shown by the photograph of one of the databases on a laptop. I need the basic ability to turn off scripts in a native package. Works fine in version 16.
It is helpful to have posted the screenshot, but it does not prove the point you are making.
1. None of the scripts listed in the Script shortcuts window matches an unchecked script revealed in the screenshot.
2. Your screenshot shows several folders which are themselves unchecked, but the folders are not open to show whether each individual script within them is also unchecked.
I reiterate the point made by tsplatypus: "don't just uncheck the folder, open it and uncheck them [the scripts] in the folder as well". Unchecking the folder does only that—unchecks the folder itself. To get the effect you are seeing you must have some scripts somewhere in you list that are not unchecked.
Ug! found several buried folders in do-not-use folder many layers down with checks. Thanks for pointing out what I should have noticed from the start. Great call. Sorry for wasting space.
No apology necessary. It's not a waste when you learn something along the way. Glad to have helped—and thanks for the badge.
