When throwing errors in expressions show the Error message on Windows properly
Throwing Errors is very helpful when debugging expressions (see https://twitter.com/mamoworld/status/1101168951185289217 )
However, currently on Windows the thrown error message is not shown in the status bar. On Mac this already works nicely.
The reason seems to be some subtle differences of how exactly the banner messages are shown on Mac/Win (see https://twitter.com/1ResCreation/status/1117325915007016962)
Please make Win behave the same as Mac for this and show the message directly in the status bar.
As noted by Pablo below, this issue was fixed in After Effects 16.1.2. Custom expression errors are visible in the expression error banner on all platforms.

I believe this is fixed in 16.1.2?
