Running Clip Manager 5
version 5.0.2 ( 532 )

When i click the link on the Brian Dunning web page I get taken to but I have no option of Pasting it on Clip Manager.

Is Clip Manager still being supported and developed? Have not seen an update for a long time.

    After copying a custom function from Brian's website, you need to create a new clip (CMD+N) and then paste with CMD+V. Then you should have the clip that you can use in FileMaker Pro.

    We have a small video about it:

    We're still working on Clip Manager. The last public release was about 4 months ago (25/11/16)

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the response.

    After I got it, I investigated further and figured out the problem. I was using Safari, and the link in the website uses java to copy it to the clipboard… and Safari by default does not use Java, so it just took me to your site.

    I used Chrome instead and it worked.
