There's no "Paste Text Only" menu item in Windows (!?)

Hi all


I just discovered that FMP14 on Windows has no "Paste Text Only" menu item(!)


It's there on Mac -- both in the default menus and in the Custom Menus management -- but not in Windows (see attached pic)


And it's in FMP Help Copying and moving data in records (

To: Paste text from the Clipboard without formatting (like bold or italic)

Do this in Browse mode: Click the field you want to hold the text, then choose Edit menu > Paste Text Only


Oddly, the default keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+V) DOES work -- even though the menu item itself doesn't exist in either default or custom menus. 


(I discovered this because I'd set a custom menu to use the word "Paste" for Paste Text Only, with Ctrl+V as the shortcut . It works fine on Mac but on Windows the only thing that goes into the field is a character that looks like a small capital "T". 

FWIW: I haven't checked pre-14.)


Any thoughts, anyone?
