Clipboard not working


FileMaker Pro


11 and previous versions

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue


We have a couple of users who are using Filemaker (one on version 8 the other on version 11). Both are running it on PCs with Windows 7. They have reported that the clipboard functionality intermittently stops working. They copy something and paste it but nothing is pasted. There seems to be no pattern to this.

I had a look on your forums and found a couple of posts where other people have experienced the same thing and indeed the problem seems to go back through several Filemaker versions. Is this a know issue that you are working on or do you know of a fix to sort this?

Steps to reproduce the problem

No way to reproduce as there does not appear to be a pattern.

Expected result

Clipboard contents should be pasted into field

Actual result

Nothing is pasted

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error reported
