Abstrakt announced on Friday the release of
reStyler, a free FileMaker Pro 7 plug-in that helps fix a clipboard bug found in the database software. Abstrakt noted that FileMaker 7 features an internal clipboard format that isn’t completely compatible with Mac OS X’s clipboard. For example, FileMaker 7 doesn’t offer the “paste with styles” option, which creates problems when copying and pasting text from an application such as Word, which uses rich text format as its main clipboard format. reStyler is a workaround that translates between the two clipboard types until FileMaker fixes the bug.
