Product and version (e.g. FileMaker Pro 14.0.3) Pro Advanced

OS and version Windows 10 Enterprise 1703



Pasting a multiline calculation into the tooltip field of the inspector will paste only the first line


How to replicate

Copy a calculation with more then one line using Ctrl-C. e.g.


Case( not IsEmpty(Familie::_fk_Klinik) ;

Familie.Klinik::Name  & ¶  &

Familie.Klinik::Adresse & ¶ &

"-----------" & ¶  &



In layout mode, click on any field. Bring up the inspector, section "position". Click in the field "Tooltip". Press Ctrl-V or right-click and select "insert". The tooltip will only contain the line "Case( not IsEmpty(Familie::_fk_Klinik) ;"


Workaround (if any)

Use the "Specify calculation" dialog to paste the tooltip
