Problems with scripted copy/paste in Windows

I'm having really bad cross-platform problems.

A simple script that copies formatted text and pastes it between fields works perfectly on MacOS X, but run the same script in Windows 98 or 2000 and it breaks. The text formatting is lost. If I paste by hand (Ctrl-V) then the test formatting is retained.

I'm going crazy. I hate it when stuff like that happens.

FMP 6.0v4, tested on several machines.

I just made a test DB in Mac OS X & ran it on W2K. Worked OK for me. See if my attachment works on your computers, that may be a clue.

The only things I can think of off the top of my head:

Could any font substitution have messed up?

Are all your Windoze fonts installed in FileMaker's Font menu?

Thanks Sam.

I suppose I should have mentioned I am using VirtualPC (I made my post at 3:00 am after spending half the night debugging the problem, I was tired and frustrated) because I just tested your file and it doesn't do the paste correctly. So it must be a bug in VPC not FMP as such.

Much appreciated.

I've read about Copy and Paste problems in VPC, of course I'm too senile to remember where...

VPC is great, I've used it for years, but for production work its glitches & speed issues become an issue for me. I saved a couple of PCs from the trash and use an Athlon 700MHz for FileMaker development on PCs. I use Timbuktu, so I can use one keyboard & monitor. Unfortunately, PCs require keyboards & monitors at boot, so I can't run them headless...
