Fixed Master values of custom phrases not displayed in child languages

Not sure whether it should be considered as a bug or a thing to be improved:

Creating a custom phrase in a parent language and editing it in a child language displays the master value field empty:


Shouldn't it be populated with the value of the custom phrase in the parent language? That's what a translator expects and, in fact, very much is in need of.
I had to check XF 1.5 to verify the expected behaviour.

The bug here is actually the "Master value" row showing at all. That should only be shown if the phrase exists in the "Master language".

So it is that which we will fix, but feel free to make a suggestion for viewing the parent's value within a child language.
Thank you for reporting this issue. It has now been resolved and we are aiming to include it in a future XF release (2.1.4).

Change log:
When editing a phrase, only display the "Master value" row if the phrase exists in the "Master language".
Any changes made as a result of this issue being resolved may not be rolled out here until later.
