Editing text
In Browse mode, you can edit or format any selectable text in a field. Use Browse mode to edit or change the data stored in your database. You can also edit text objects in Layout mode.
To edit text:
1. Select the text you want to edit.
2. Type new text or make changes.
Whatever you type either replaces the text that was selected or is inserted after the insertion point.
Do this
Put selected text on the Clipboard
Choose Edit menu > Cut (to remove the text) or Copy (to duplicate it). The text stays on the Clipboard until the next time you use Cut or Copy.
Insert the contents of the Clipboard at the insertion point
Choose Edit menu > Paste.
Insert a tab character into a field
Press Ctrl+Tab (Windows) or Option-Tab (OS X).
Delete selected text
Choose Edit menu > Clear, or press Backspace or Delete. FileMaker Pro doesn't place the text on the Clipboard, and you can't paste it anywhere.
