I posted a bug report as well. Filters and formatters were horribly
broken in v13. All my phone and postal code formatters stopped working
and its been a slow road back ever since.

Nice catch on the field length. Not sure I would have thought to do

maybe it was a tougher fix than I thought it would have been?=80¶.

I had to enlarge my phone# fields to be the size of the mask (format)
instead of the size of the data (10 characters).

/color><color><param>FFC79,0365,0771/param>PPerhaps others have
noticed, but the filter / format mechanism is screwing up on phone
numbers and the toolbox for filters is screwed up too.

I have been using (for many years) the simple display format: ¬=A0¬=A0
###-#### ¬=A0to display phone numbers, which I have stored as alpha.

Now, for a phone number ¬=A01234567890 ¬=A0the display is showing
(123) 456-
It displays exactly 10 characters (maybe because the source is
10-characters long?) and then nothing.

The entry filter I've used for phone#'s is ¬=A0&9(###) ###-####. This,
too, is now screwed up. It only lets me input 6 digits.
Worse yet, it doesn't let me tab away after only getting to put in 6
characters. It just keeps beeping.

Also, in the toolbox -> Filters, the example display formats mechanism
is screwed up.
If one chooses the "Telephone Display Format Examples" and
double-clicks one, it actually loads up a time format ¬=A0(!0&9## Hrs
Mins ## Secs)
also, the telephone display format examples are only 9 chars, not 10.
¬=A0(###) ###-###

Has anybody else encountered this? Has it been reported to 4D? How
does one report these bugs?
