It has changed in FM12 certainly.
I tried to make a sample file to create a script so that the behavior is similar to FM11, I tried to call in OnRecordCommit.
Thanks for the confirmation and your example scripted workaround.
The original FM11 behavior was very logical and worked nicely.
Do you know why has this changed?
Is the change documented anywhere?
Following up on by the info from user14047 this behavior is a bug written up in August 2012.
Would love to know when it will be fixed.
Definitely looks buggy (the required field *is* on the layout).
It seems to be an issue with "Not Empty" validation, but not others (I only tasted a couple others).
Using a calculated validation does not (surprisingly) seem to help. It seems like FileMaker recognizes not IsEmpty ( Self ) calc as the same a the is Required checkbox...interesting...
