    Paste adds a leading space

    JohnBuckingham

      Summary

      Paste adds a leading space

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      Advanced 11.0v2

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.5.8

      Description of the issue

      If I copy a 'word' (i.e. double-click to select and copy), when I paste into the 'Specify Calculation' area for a 'Set Field' calculation, an unexpected leading space is also inserted when there is text already present. This is unwanted behaviour most of the time and is not consistent with previous versions (pre-11)...

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      In a 'Specify Calculation' dialog, type (without the inverted commas) "TableOccurrenceName::FieldName". Now double-click "FieldName" and cut it. Then, without any other action; paste.

      Expected result

      TableOccurrenceName::FieldName (as happens in this environment, for instance!)

      Actual result

      TableOccurrenceName:: FieldName (there is a space twixt '::' & 'Field...' )

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None - unless it WAS a field name, in which case it is now not recognised when I exit the calculation!

      Configuration information

      Not sure. Tell me if anything else is needed. It IS the same in OS X 10.6.4...
