Description

Puts RTF data on the clipboard.
See also Text.TextToRTF to convert formatted text to RTF.

For server this will modify the clipboard of the user account running the server app on the server computer and not the clipboard of any client.

On Windows you may want to use Text.ReplaceNewline first to convert line endings. FileMaker on Windows uses Mac line endings internally.
