Please bring us back the @formula debugger !!
Local and Remote Debugging !!

and actually make it work this time around? (without crashing the client) ;-)
2) Harkpabst Meliantrop3248 (07 Jan 2008)
Not if it's just remotely similar to the original in R5!

An alternative would be to write an openSource formula language interpreter, for example with java and an openSource parser generator like ANTLR. Lots of work, but I would like it.

According to Maureen, there will be a formula debugger in an upcoming Eclipse-based version of Designer. It will not be in Designer 8.5, but in a later version.

I used it.... I never relied on it, but I used it. And now, I wish I had it back too.

We have several complex formulas where it would be nice to put a @debug([Wait]) for break points or an @debug([Watch];field1:field2) for a watch list. When either is hit, the formula debugger opens in a similar fashion to the LS debugger and we can watch or walk through the code. One column formula is SO complex, that we cannot add another byte without crashing the client (seriously, I am hoping to optimize this just a bit soon).

There was a Formula debugger?!?

I don't remember that. Can't believe I have missed it, but now I miss it even more.

Ah well, the mind does go doolally after all these years.
