Is there a way to go back to the original FM Pro 13.0 and then add the updates incrementally? The problem started when I updated the software.
Thank you for your posts.
Try installing the full version of FileMaker Pro 13.0v5. Contact our Customer Care department at toll-free 800-325-2747 and request a link to a full installation. If you are outside of North America, contact the FileMaker office nearest you.
It might also generate some useful info if you were to create a small test file with one or two fields and try copy/pasting tests with this file.
It can happen that a file is damaged and a) the damage does not affect behavior until OS or FM App is updated and b) the damage is not detected/repaired by Recover.
Having both in two files is sort of like "winning" the misfortune lottery--very unlikely, but it's not impossible.
PhilModJunk: Thanks for the advice. I created a new database, and cannot paste text into it.
I am in touch with Customer Care. We reinstalled FM Pro 13.0v5, and all appeared well until this morning. I cannot paste any text this morning.
By the way. FM THINKS it pasted the text, because the "undo paste" selection is visible.
It sounds like your text is being pasted, but filemaker is unable to display it. If you click into the field, what do you see? If you click and drag or double click inside this field, what happens?
If this were a Mac system, I'd suggest playing some games with the fonts specified to see if this is a font issue, but have never seen that issue with Windows....
This is a bit of a long shot, but leave Filemaker out of this for a second and pull up the windows display control panel for your windows OS. What percentage is specified in this panel? If it is any value other than 100%, change this setting to 100% and see if that makes a difference. There are known display issues that can occur when your display settings are not at 100%.
This appears to be a conflict between FM Pro 13.0v5 and a recent automatic Windows Update.
I performed a system restore to a time before the glitch appeared. Right now I can paste data into fields properly. (I have 13.0v4 and all is well)
I'm doing a series of re-installs to see if I can narrow this down.
