FileMaker Pro 3 format

Why is it that sometimes when I enter data in FM Pro 3 it obeys the formatting I have set (font, size, style etc) and others defaults to Geneva plain?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you copy styled data (i.e. a text in Times 10 bold) from a word processing application to the clipboard and the you paste it into FileMaker, it will retain the styles (if you look at the clipboard window in the Finder it says "Styled Text").

To remove the setting that are stored in a FileMaker Pro field, clear the field (select it and type the delete key), CLICK outside the field to deselect the record, click back into the field and type you data again.
