App Checker Does not show Error Location

In the past the App Checker would tell you What button or control was the culprit along with the property that is at fault.  Now all I am getting is the the Screen name and the issue such as unused variable.  This makes it almost impossible to find.  Anyone else seeing this?  Any thoughts?

Re: App Checker Does not show Error Location

This is good feedback, I'll bring along to the team to add the link in the app checker for the variable definition.

Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can use the variables viewer to find where it is defined. As you can see below, once you find out the name of the variable that is not being used, and whether it's a global variable (belonging to the App, defined with Set) or a screen variable (belonging to a screen, defined with UpdateContext), you can go to View -> Variables, find the offending variable, and look at its definitions.

Hope this helps!
