How to keep field's font

Recommended Posts

I use a certain font type and size as standard throughout my solution. Users have permission to cut and past text from other fields and other sources (eg: web sites, Word documents...) into my solution's fields. I want all the text to look the same. Is there a way to force the field to retain the font characteristics I want despite the formating of the text being pasted in?

I tried, via FM preferences, font locking, etc... but without success. The only other way I see as a solution is have have an "Enter" button that is scripted to format the text. As this would entail a lot of extra scripting (for all the fields involved) I would prefer not to do this but if it's the only way, I'll make the time.

Thanks for all your help, past and future.
