FM 14 OS X text expander

I was using the Keyboard System Preference Pane "Text" replacement options to store common functions with my preferred syntax. For instance, if I type "fmLet" I would get something like this with the returns and indenting the way I like it.

Let ( [

~var = exp ;

~var = exp

]

;

calculation

)

Similar shortcuts for fmSQL, etc. where I have my own placeholder text that makes more sense to me than FileMaker's default.

This doesn't seem to work in the new Calculation Workspace (or whatever they are calling it). I don't quite understand why it shouldn't work, but it doesn't. Anyone else experiencing this or have a work-around?

 

Thanks!
