We've had this issue on MacOSX for some time. Try using a conditional format formula set to TextFormatRemove(self). Alternatively, if you select undo (ctrl Z) immediately after the paste, it may restore the text format to normal.
Im a bit hesitant to set all fields with conditional formatting due to the numerous reports of slowness with heavy use of conditional formatting.
I'm just curious why something useful like this would be removed in the new version?
I may just setup an auto-enter calc using the TextFormatRemove function on the key fields that we copy/paste into.
I always use Paste Without Style when bringing data into FM. As far a I know Filemaker has done this for a long time... Well prior to FM12. I am actually more puzzled why it was not doing it before. Maybe FM changed the default for Paste options. If the data is Pasted with Style or a fields text is selected and a style chosen... It will overide the fields settings and carry that style forward.
You can use auto-enter calculations that Set or Remove the styles.
Hope this helps,
How would you paste without style? I see no option for that.
When right clicking in field the only option is Paste, or use Ctrl V
Yes that is the best way to handle it set up an auto enter calc to strip out the formattting.
It is a hidden option in Windows to paste without style.
Hold down the Shift key while selecting Paste from the menu.
Or you can use Shift Ctrl V.
Never knew that, thanks for the tip!
