Product and version Filemaker Pro (and FileMaker Pro Advance)

OS and version Windows 7 Enterprise (Service Pack 1)

Browser and version -


Can not copy a date value from a drop-down calendar using the shortcut (Ctrl+C)

How to replicate

  1. Create a date field
  2. Make the field a drop-down calendar in the layout
  3. Enter a date value
  4. Re-entre the field and while the date value is highlighted click (Ctrl + C), the date will not get copied to the clipboard. 


Workaround None


Note: copying the date by right clicking and selecting copy works fine, but it does not solve my problem as my users want to use the keyboard shortcut.
