Bugs Fixed

  • The annoying little bug relating to FileMaker not scrolling horizontally in certain conditions has been fixed.
  • (Windows) Another annoying, perhaps not so little, bug has been fixed, one that relates to FileMaker Pro unexpectedly changing the text input method from Japanese to Roman, which could then not be reversed anywhere in Windows.
  • (macOS) A bug that caused long script names to be truncated in certain conditions has been fixed.
