Operating System: Mac OS X 10.11.6

Hardware: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)

Version: FMPA 16.0.3.302

 

Description of Problem:

Cannot paste fields into a newly created table.

 

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new table
  2. Copy fields from another table
  3. Go to the new table, click into the field display area to select it
  4. Paste

 

Expected Result

The fields on the clipboard should be pasted into the table

 

Actual Result

The fields are not pasted into the table

 

Workaround

It is necessary to touch the table in some way, such as creating a field. Clicking on several of the column headers is enough. However, clicking into the area where the "No Fields" text is displayed is not sufficient. Multiple mouse-clicks into that area do not select it and make it a target for pasting.
