Pasting into field includes formatting


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Win 7 Pro

Description of the issue

In previous versions of filemaker, when you copied information outside of filemaker and pasted that information into a filemaker field, the data would be pasted with no formatting and would use the font and size specified on the field.

In filemaker 12, when you perform the same copy/paste, the data you copied is now pasted with formatting and ignores what the font and size set on the field are.

See discussion for screenshots:

Steps to reproduce the problem

copy data from outside source.
paste into filemaker field.

Expected result

the data pasted should reflect the font and size specified on the field. should be pasted without formatting

Actual result

the data pasted is pasted with formatting


2 workarounds possible:

1. When pasting, hold Shift will pressing Ctrl V
2. Auto enter calc on all fields: TextFormatRemove (Self)
