Can you edit the colors and style of the line(s) in Scriptwriter? I want to make my COMMENTS bold and a different color?
I do not know of any way to make the comments bold or to change their color from the default green color. To highlight part of a comment I might type one or more words in ALL CAPS so those words stand out more. I also tend to add some extra # symbols to the start and end of the comment so they again stand out more (at least to me). You could use different symbols to denote specific types of comments.
# ##### Loop through each PURCHASE ORDER LINE and perform THIS FUNCTION ####
# ***** Perform the below steps if NO RECORDS FOUND *****
I don't believe you can change style within the script editor, but you can edit some of the coloring.
Script Workspace -> View - > Preferences -> Syntax Coloring
Thanks very helpful - color wise. Wish List the Style request for the future.
While its far from my favoured plugin, you dont need to pay to get the useful syntax highlighting in the MBS plugin. You will have to turn off lots of choices you dont want in the preferences every time you restart FileMaker - both pointless and more than mildly irritating -, but you can go quite long way, as screenshot shows

Sounds like a problem with saving preferences.
Can you explain or provide details?
Taken the trouble and signifcant inconvenience to completely trash my preferences today.
Select which MBS items I REALLY dont ever want to see on the screen, and installed my set of custom colours
Reset all my FileMaker dialogs as I want them and added all my hosts.
Worked for a bit. Closed FileMaker. All the junk is back on my scripts workspace and colours have gone away, back to FM default.
FMPA 17.0.3 on 10.13.6. Although thats hardly relevant as this has been unuseable for so long its seems hardly worth it as this is only feature I am interested in.
You can also add emoji to the comments to better draw attention to them:
Does this ONLY apply to Mac though???? It certainly does in dialog boxes labels... makign it not quite so useful...
Functional but not quite as pretty on Windows 10.
Looks like the emoji survive in the script comments, but they are colorized like everything else on the comment line - green by default.
Doubtless, some emoji don't survive.
