FileMaker script triggers are simply amazing and I hadn’t realized this and thought I’d share this tidbit.

If the OnObjectEnter script trigger is attached to a portal object and the user moves from one portal row to the next, the trigger will fire regardless of any embedded objects with / without triggers attached.
