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:
Whatever you type either replaces the text that was selected or is inserted after the insertion point.
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.
Choose Edit menu > Paste.
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.
Note  When you select a rotated field in Browse mode, the field is temporarily displayed unrotated while you edit the text in the field. See Rotating objects.
