      Expected result

      Drop text into safari text field

      Actual result

      text disappears

      no error message

      Configuration information

      This happens on multiple different machines running OS X 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 (all 3 tested with FMP 12, only one with FMP 11). Did fresh install of Filemaker and 10.8 and FMP 12 and issue persists.

      Workaround

               Thank you for your post.

               I am able to replicate the issue with Safari.  Neither Firefox nor Chrome have this issue.

               Although this is probably a Safari issue, I have forwarded your post along with my findings to our Development and Testing departments for review.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.  Until then, continue using copy and paste as the workaround.

                 Our Testing department informed me that this has previously been reported (not by a forum member), and the information has been sent to Development for additional review.

                    I can replicate this issue with Mac OSX 10.11* and Safari 9.1.1:

                    • Fail when try to drag and drop text from a FM field into a form field in a web form in Safari.

                    • Drag and drop from FM txt to the Safari href-field (navigation) works as expected √

                     

                    • Using the same website as a WebViewer, drag and drop from a FM field into a form field in WV works √

                     

                    Though this experience could lead to a work around where the website to drag-in text would be built as a WV with the FM GUI
