When a field editor label contains merge syntax, if the merge source changes (e.g. model data), the label does not update to reflect the change.

This is similar to the issue at https://community.skuidify.com/skuid/topics/field-editor-section-title-does-not-update-when-model-da...

The work around is to manually render the field editor but this has unintended consequences:

1) For large field editors and/or situations where there are multiple labels across multiple field editors that rely on the merged source for their label content, manually rendering all the field editors becomes an expensive operation 

2) The current cursor location is lost so if the user was on field #5 of Editor B, after refreshing editor B, the cursor is no longer on Field #5 because the entire editor was redrawn.

Hi Barry~

Thank you for your patience as we addressed this bug. This issue has been resolved in the Brooklyn GA release which is now available from the Skuid Releases page.

As a reminder, Salesforce does NOT allow reverting back to prior versions of managed packages. Skuid always recommends installing new versions in a non-business critical sandbox environment to test all mission critical functionality before installing into a production environment. We also recommend that you update out of date themes when you upgrade.

Thanks!

Karen
