Hmmm, minor detail, but details can be crucial--especially in figuring out possible bugs.
You are copying text from a text box in a FileMaker dialog instead of a FileMaker data field.
Do you get the same lock up if you return to browse mode and copy text from one of the fields such as Date Created?
If you create a brand new file and copy data, does FileMaker lock up with this new file?
IF you put the above file on a different computer and open it, do you get the same behavior.
Freezes and crashes can have many causes, the above questions are intended to rule or confirm possible causes for this behavior.
Thanks for response. Yes I got the same result in Browse and Layout and with newly created databases with minimal settings. And tried Recover. Copy and paste continued to work in other programs,
I tried uninstalling Filemaker and doing a clean reinstall, and doing Iolo System Mechanic clean up and but stil had the problem.
I have now fixed problem (I don't know how long for) by doing a computer clean out of old software that wan't used and a Iolo System Mechanic clean up. Then again uninstalled then reinstalled Filemaker and downloaded a new copy of latest update. Then cleaned StartUp programs
Something on my system must have been disagreeing with that one aspect of Filemaker. If nothing else the whole system now works better.
