    I have the same problem. Pasting a custom function doesn't work using ClipManager 5 and FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced.

    Dear Benedick,

    Custom functions must be created first in the file before it can be used in script.

    To do this copy the clip from Clip Manager. Next you open the "Custom Functions" dialog, via the menu: File > Manage > Custom Functions.

    You can now paste the custom function.

    Save the custom function by pressing on the OK button.

    Now you can use the custom function, in your scripts or field definitions.

    Best regards,
