Rich text support option at field level

    It's somehow fantastic and has always been that FileMaker supports rich text so seamlessly.

    But frankly, I think that about 99.9% of the fields in a database would rather avoid rich text.

    Currently, we use an auto enter calc with a custom function in about every field to remove formatting, and that slows down solutions.

    I'd love to have a 'support rich text' checkbox in the field options (checked by default for backward compatibility purpose).

    While a field where this checkbox is unchecked is active, text formatting options are greyed out.

    While pasting or dropping content, only the text without enrichments would be pasted/inserted.
