Copy Table Content Menu Command for FileMaker on Mac

Do you need to copy the contents of a table in FileMaker easily?

in your field definitions:

or in script debugger:

With next plugin version we will include a new feature: For all tables where FileMaker doesn't have it's own contextual menu, we can add one with a command to copy the content to the clipboard. This is very helpful if you like to copy a call stack or the list of fields from your solution. And probably 10 other tables you can now copy, too.
The copy is just a right mouse click away.

Hi Christian, Are you sure “Table” is the right word? A table in FileMaker is, well, the thing under the “Tables” tab in Manage Database. But this looks like you’re talking about something else. The script call stack for example isn’t really a table, at least not in FileMaker terms. I could be misunderstanding you though. Could you clarify?

The user interface control used by FileMaker is a NSTableView. And our plugin adds a contextual menu there to allow copying the content.
