    Unable to paste into a text field



      Unable to paste into a text field


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.6.8

      Description of the issue

      Simple pasting of text does not work in my copy of FMP 10.0.2. Typically I'm pasting short snippets like tracking numbers or addresses from a web page or another application. Neither Paste nor Paste Text Only works, and neither the keyboard shortcut nor the menu commands are effective. I CAN copy from FMP and paste the text into other applications.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Select and copy text from another application
      2. Paste into a text field in FMP with cmd-V, shift-opt-cmd-V, or by choosing one of the paste commands from the Edit menu
      3. Tear hair in frustration

      Expected result

      Either styled or unstyled text should appear in the text field

      Actual result

      nothing happens

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear



      Type text in by hand
