Starting with 18 everything gets calculated

I was listening to a presentation by Douglas Walllis at DevCon 2019 and I don't know if people are aware but they changed how FileMaker deals with the info in the greyed area: eventhough those objects are not rendered in the window, if they involve calculations, those calculations and anything related is downloaded from the server and processed.


Are you referring to the objects that are placed outside the layout rendering surface (the grey area) in layout mode?

Yep. The place where we sometimes put messages, fields and what not.
