Problem editing FXML documents with latest SceneBuilder 8.2.0 with a"${attrname}" text property

Not sure whether this is the correct list, if not, please advise where to post such observations.

The latest SceneBuilder 8.2.0 (in this case the 64-bit Windows-Version) seems to not be able to
process 'text="${attrname}"' definitions, e.g. for a Label. Such an entry will not be displayed in
the Properties section (the attribute "Text" is empty), the Label cannot be interactively resized or
moved and is flagged with a superimposed warning icon in the Document Hierarchy. When saving a
manually created FXML document after editing in the ScreenBuilder the entire text-attribute
definition gets removed!

How is one supposed to communicate such a bug in SceneBuilder?
