applescript - paste to field crash

Recommended Posts

-My solution is pasting the clipboard into a FMP field.

-Every time at first run, FMP crashes.

-Then intermittently it will crash after that.

-Bumping up the pause helped, but not with the first execution


Go to Layout

Go to Field

Perform AppleScript

Pause/Resume Script [ Duration 5 sec ]


tell application "System Events"

tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced" to activate

tell process "FileMaker Pro Advanced" to keystroke "v" using command down

end tell

Any suggestions, or other solutions?

Does using

do menu menu item "Paste" of menu "Edit"

work better? If nothing else, this would remove 3 lines of code.

OTOH, is there a reason why you aren't using the Paste script step in FMP?
