    Copying text from web view in Windows



      Copying text from web view in Windows


      FileMaker Pro


      12 v3

      Operating system version

      Windows 7 SP 1

      Description of the issue

      When I select and copy text in a web view then go to a different layout that belongs to a different table, I am unable to paste the text in the other layout. If I paste it on the same layout it will paste and then will paste in the other layout as well.

      I created a test database that verified the problem is not related to any of my current code in a different solution. This problem does not happen on the Mac, only Windows.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      • Select text on a web viewer
      • Copy
      • Switch to a different layout
      • Try pasting the text in a field

      Expected result

      The copied text should paste.

      If you try pasting in a different application (like notepad) then you will see the text get pasted.

      Actual result

      The text does not paste.


      If I paste the text in the layout it's copied from, then I can paste it in the other layout.
