Summary

"Copy one related record in a portal" copies whole parent record instead

Version

FMP 12.0v1

Operating system version

OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

The help page "Copying and moving data in records" indicates that you can "copy one related record in a portal" by "select[ing] a related record" and then performing the Copy command.

I've tried this in a new file, but selecting a portal row (not entering a field, but rather causing the portal row to highlight gray) and then copying behaves as though the portal row weren't selected: the parent record's fields and all child records' fields on the layout are all copied together.

Expected result

The clipboard should receive tab-separated data from the fields in just that one portal row, as the help file claims.
