          Apple Jimi,


          I'm using the same set up. Windows Xp sp3, FMP 10 adv.


          I copied the text from your post, switched to a copy of FMP that I already had open to show a large scale text field and pasted the text. No crash or any other problems.


          The file was a client of FMS 10.


          I'd try:


          Paste the text into a new file's text field.


          Copy the text from your own post to the thread and paste it into a text field.


          Let us know what happens.

               I'm with PhilModJunk on this.  Try pasting the same text into a plain text editor and then copying from there to paste into FileMaker.  My guess is that there are "illegal" characters in your text and that FMP is handling these characters poorly.  One other thing you can try (in case users will regularly be pasting random text into FileMaker) is to use an auto-enter calc on that field (or an OnObjectModify script trigger) in conjunction with the filter() function to clean up the text to legal/expected characters before it gets saved.

                 I tried coping the text from this post and pasting it into a FM10 text field, still crashed.

              I tried pasting the text into MS Notepad then coping the text from Notepad and pasting it into a FM10 text field, still crashed.

              As I said this was created in FM9 with no problems, wouldn't FM9 also have a problem if it was illegal character(s)?

              Database with this text is hosted and FM9 has no problems, view, edit, copy, paste. I cannot even open the record in FM10 to view without FM10 crashing.

                Try it on a text field in a brand new file and see if you see the same problem.


                Try pasting entirely different text and see if the problem occurs.


                Since we can paste into an FMP 10 client of FMS 10, Windows XP, SP3, there must be something different between your situation and mine.

                     The problem seems to be SMTPit Plug-In. I did a clean install of Windows, FMA 10 and did not have the problem until I installed SMTPit Plug-In.
