FileMaker is not a word processing program and will not be able to reproduce such formatting automatically when data from a word processor is pasted into it. It simply cannot interpret such application specific formatting.
Thank you for the post.
PhilModJunk is correct (thank you!) that this is a limitation of the program as currently designed.
If you would like to see a change in this behavior, I would encourage you to enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
These web form suggestions are monitored and read by our Development and Product Management departments and then discussed and considered for a future release. Although I could copy and paste your post into the web form, there are some questions asked that only you can answer.
Philmodjunk, thank you. It's the fact that it does absolutely every other word processing function that I require that surprised me.
Many thanks TSFalcon. Will do so. You have a very polite manner!
