Redux: Script Step Indention


I thru up a query requesting a vertical ruler Line in a Define Script Workspace window some time back.


This was not shot down and various workarounds were proffered, Prime suggestion was to slide the Script Workspace window to the “Left” edge of the working Monitor. An "acceptable" workaround until FileMaker’s update version 17.0.2  ( mucked it up.


Databases display windows structure

Prior to the current Rev, Script Workspace Always Overlaid ALL displayed database file windows ( In my case 2 displayed )


Per screen grab up through FM 17.0.1:

Now FM 17.0.2

Same database file structure & window positions in FM 17.0.2 as was in 17.0.1 per screen grabs


Script Workspace now covers only the current file it is working in, acceptable and understood. However this now undoes the “slide the Script Workspace window to the “Left” edge. The Left edge file stays in front of the “Script Workspace window”

With the above, I would reiterate my request for a Vertical ruler line in the Define Script Workspace window.
