FWIW...I'm running Win XP - SP2 with FM 7.2 (latest patch/update), and there's only one maker.ini where this change can be made, and it's in the Program Files folder in the path where FM 7.2 is installed. There is a maker.ini in the Documents and Settings path to my UserID application data, but it doesn't even contain the line that would need to be modified. Changing the one in the Program Files path is all it took to make the change effective on my system.
Will: Please clarify: Are you saying that changing the one and only maker.ini file to have TEXT as the first option on the line ClipboardFormatsPriorities= ...has no effect?

Here's the mystery - Running 7.2 on XP, sp2. I only have the one maker.ini (the one in the Program Files folder). I did a search through the entire C drive for the second one. Nothing shows up. Of course, when I move the TEXT option to the head of the list in the Program Files file, it doesn't change how the paste function works. Any hints where my other maker.ini might be lurking?? will white On Mar 5, 2008, at 4:14 AM, Reng, Dr. Winfried wrote: > Hi Marta, > > In the maker.ini file change the order of formats > for ClipboardFormatsPriorities, so that TEXT comes > first.
