    Paste Text Only in Custom Menu on OS X

    DickHoning

      Hi there,

       

      does anybody know a workaround for the Paste Text Only (option) Command in the Edit Menu no longer working when part of a Custom Menu ?

       

      This is when adding the alt key to the command-v shortcut.

       

      Thanks in advance and best regards - Dick

          Hi Dick,

           

          I tried this, as this is important to me in my db's. Actually it's working, except when you are inside, or just right next to styled text. Then it takes on the 'currently active' style, ie. bold

           

          I tried this script instead of the menu command:

           

          Insert Calculated Result [TextStyleRemove ( "" ; AllStyles )]

          Paste [No styles]

           

          But to no avail.

           

          I will be working on this.

           

          Will I see you thursday in Antwerp?

            Hi Dick,

             

            I elaborated a little bit about this.

             

            No matter how your pasted text is styled, when you paste it without style, it takes the style from the surrounding text. To be precise: The text you copied elsewhere is styled as Underlined, Italic and Blue. Pasted in FM 12 inbetween or just after Bold and Black text the text appears also bold and black.

             

            Maybe this is expected behaviour. I would prefer to get plain text (or whatever the default style of the field happens to be), which is what I expect when I see 'Paste Without Style'.

             

            I could not find a workaround so far.
