Is there actually any developer on the earth that wants the default behavior of Paste, ie to also paste the format?


I don't understand this. I have been involved in numerous Filemaker solutions and NO users never cared about pasting without format. I do however, because I get the complaints when things doesnt look as they are supposed to do.

Yes, there are workarunds for this. Script triggers and Auto calculations to name two. But really Filemaker? You want me to manually put this on thousand of fields and layouts?


I want a setting in my database for me, as the developer, that controls the behavior for pasted text. The default would be, without a doubt, to paste text without formatting.


Anyone with me?
