    Copy-Paste issue in newer FM version


      Product and version (FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.5, FileMaker Pro 12.0 v4, Server Admin Console-Version: 13.0v5 x64)

      OS and version : Client: Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise, Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601, x64-based PC

      Hardware (Server: on VM ware Windows, Client: Prozessor     Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2520M

      Copy-Paste does not work directly out of a PDF with FMPA 14.0.5 into a field. This is annoying if content need first to be put in Email/ MSword or such and then to FMPA 14.0.5.


      Seems not solved

      How to replicate

      Use attached PDF

      Workaround (if any)

      Use old version of FileMaker Pro 12.0 v4 to work directly.

      Or copy from PDF to Email/ MS Word then to FM.


      Is this not yet solved with newer version?

          Thank you for your post.


          How was this PDF created?  If you use the PDFs that come with FileMaker Pro Advanced 14 (FMP Acknowledgements.pdf, FMP Read Me (English).pdf, FMPA License (English).pdf), you can copy and paste without any issue.  With your PDF, you can only paste the text (Edit menu -> Paste Text Only).

            Thanks for the hint.

            Not sure how PDF was created but I found now two suitable solutions:

            Use Foxxit Reader

            Use Adobe Acrobat reader with the function "copy with format" (ony CTRL-C does not work)


            Solved! Thanks for the help!
