Hide lines in Data Viewer

For MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.3 we got a last minute feature addition, just before the release tomorrow. For years people asked us to help making the data viewer in FileMaker more readable with hiding tons of globals or field references, so developers can better see local variables.

While we can't really hide the data, we found recently another trick: We change the height of the rows to 1 point and that may be enough to clear space needed. This works fine in various FileMaker versions.

As you can see, pressing ⌘-⌥-F shows or hides the fields while pressing ⌘-⌥-G shows or hides the global variables. And of course we still have ⌘-F to show find bar and jump to the search field. Press ⌘-G to jump to the next search result.

Please try it with downloading version 10.3 of our plugins in the next days.
