having content in my clipboard means I can't link to a movie file

Post

Hi I have a really weird experience in FM13.

I have a script that copies a field to the clip board as text so I can alter the name of a movie file before linking it to FM.

When I go to link the movie (which I need to be an old style, unmanaged link to a external server so no drag or drop possible or managed options) by right clicking on the container field (set as a interactive container) it brings up an edit popup with everything but paste available instead of the insert audio/video option that I need.

If I do paste it puts the text from the copy into the field. This is not a problem that happens in FM11

Why is it doing it? How do I clear the clipboard contents?

 

Thanks
