#14698 Vertical scrollbar flashes during auto grow review Tade0 Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to:

Or create a CKEditor instance this way:

CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor', {
	extraPlugins: 'autogrow',
	autoGrow_maxHeight: 500
} );
  1. Type enough lines for the editor to stop growing.

Expected result

The editor grows with its content.

Actual result

The editor grows, but with each step a vertical scrollbar appears for a fraction of a second.

#16769 Event fired when style is changed review t.jakut New Feature Normal

Currently applying new style or removing existing style in the editor (e.g. via changing element's style using "Styles" dropdown menu) does not fire any event. Because of that there is no sensible way to detect such changes in the editor.

Using change event for this purpose could be a workaround, but generates too much noise. Dedicated event should be a better solution.

#16808 The Justify plugin doesn't obey the custom Advanced Content Filter rules review msamsel Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Make sure the Justify plugin is available.
  2. Configure the editor to use the following custom ACF rules:
allowedContent: 'p ul{text-align};li'
  1. Load the editor. The Justify tool bar buttons are available, which is expected because we have the "p ul{text-align}" rule.
  2. Verify that the custom ACF rules are active using the JavaScript console:
> CKEDITOR.instances.content.filter.check('ul{text-align}')
> CKEDITOR.instances.content.filter.check('li{text-align}')
  1. Create a list
  • first item
  • second item

Place the caret on the second item. The Justify buttons are still enabled. Click on the "Center" button from the tool bar.

Expected result

The Justify plugin should center the entire list (both items) because our custom ACF rules forbid the text-align style on the li element but allow it on the ul element.

Justify plugin should prevent of applying justification on disallow elements. If ACF forbid to apply text-align style on given element, then plugin should be disabled on such element.

Actual result

The Justify plugin centers the second list item, thus generating invalid content from the point of view of the ACF.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

Any browser, Any OS, CKEditor 4.6.2, Justify plugin

Note that in my case I have to convert the generated HTML to a specific wiki syntax which doesn't support attributes/styles for the li element. So when the user saves the content the text-align style on the list item is lost. My users are thus complaining that the list alignment is lost. I don't want to disable the Justify plugin.

#16893 Cannot set cell width or height because inline styles are stripped review Tade0 Bug Nice to have (we want to work on it)

This is a mirror of a ticket in Drupal:

The problem here is that features added through addCommand assume that the content they allow will remain that way, but it's possible to override that using the config.

#17009 insertText splits spans with id attribute in to two review msamsel Bug Nice to have (we want to work on it)

Steps to reproduce

  1. Prepare CKEditor with below configuration and content:
    var editor = CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor1', {
    	extraAllowedContent : 'span[id]',
    <p><span class="marker" id="abc">test</span></p>
  2. Put selection here and insert any special character # using Special Character dialog <p><span class="marker" id="abc">te^st</span></p> . Alternatively you can ma a selection and execute the following command in browser console CKEDITOR.insatnces.editor1.insertText( '#' )

Expected result

<p><span class="marker" id="abc">te#st</span></p>

Actual result

The span gets split in two: <p><span class="marker" id="abc">te</span><span class="marker">#st</span></p>

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

Problem can be reproduced at least from CKEditor 4.0.

#17020 ScrollIntoView manipulates the focus review msamsel Bug Normal CKEditor 4.7.1

It looks that, when called, scrollIntoView somehow caches the focused item.

I made a demo here:

#17052 Selection started from nested table causes an error in a browser while scrolling down review t.jakut Bug Must have (possibly next milestone) CKEditor 4.7.1

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a 5x5 table (editor should become scrollable).
  2. In the first cell make 2x2 nested table with width set to 15.
  3. Fill every cell with letter "s".
  4. Start selection from nested table, then move it out of the table and drag it to scroll down the editor.

Expected result

Selection should stay in a nested table without returning any errors in console.

Actual result

There is an error in a console.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

Windows 10, tested on Chrome, Edge, IE11, Firefox.

#17067 Can't select cells in tfoot review t.jakut Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open
  2. Start selecting from a row above the one with headings.
  3. Stop selecting at the end of the table

Expected result

All selected rows remain selected.

Actual result

All rows below the one with headings are unselected just after releasing mouse button.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

It seems to be connected with the order of elements in table. If tfoot is after tbody, then everything seems to be working correctly.

#1066 Multi-user simultaneous editing support reopened New Feature Normal

#3944 Preview mode reopened New Feature Normal

It would be useful to have the preview mode (just like Source).

#7950 [IE] Text pasted differently than in other browsers reopened Bug Normal

To reproduce the defect:

with config.pasteFromWordRemoveStyles = false & config.pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles = false copy the text from attached word doc and paste it in to the editor.

Expected Result Text pasted properly and should be same across all browsers

Actual Result we are seeing the differences between IE(6,7,8& 9) & all other browsers.

In IE the top text is shown in bold and big font size where as in other browsers it is shown with small font size and with out bold.

I have attached screen shots of pasted text in IE & FF.

#12750 Paste from Word: strikethrough and underscore should have the same color as font reopened pjasiun Bug Normal

Maintain color of strikethrough and underscore the same as font color of the text when copying from Word into CKEditor.


  • In MS Word, type in “Test font” with font family = Calibri, size = 14px and font color = red and then underscore and strikethrough the words “Test font”.
  • Copy from Word and paste the same in CK Editor. The font color remains red as expected but the underscore and strikethrough changes to default black.

Solution: the color of strikethrough (<s>) and underline (<u>) will be maintained, but only if colors, underline, strikethrough are applied to exactly the same selection (portion of text).

#5317 Create tool to improve detection of non released memory pending Task Normal

Follow up of #4555

It's not the typical "memory leak" problem present in the browsers, but it's easy to store data in a way that it isn't released after one instance is destroyed in an AJAX way, and that means more and more memory use, so it's in the end a memory leak.

In the previous bug we have cleaned up the main codeline, but there are other parts that will have to be reviewed and instead of trying to dig into every plugin we must try to find an automated way that help us diagnose where are the problems.

#6486 IE bug: Many smiles in the smiley dialog do not fit into surrounding TD tag pending Bug Normal

This is IE bug only:

I can see that the table with smiles is placed in TD tag (with class cke_dialog_contents) and the TD tag has attribute style="width:270px;height:120px;".

If I put 64 smiles into the smiles table into 8 columns then this table with smiles is bigger then the surrounding TD tag (width:270px;height:120px;).

In FF it is OK and the surrounding TD is enlarged according to the smiles table but in IE it is not.

#6948 Styles combo should more accurately reflect the selection pending Bug Normal

Use the following styles:

	{ name : 'Red Title'		, element : 'h3', styles : { 'color' : 'Red' } },
	{ name : 'Red title with blue background'		, element : 'h3', styles : { 'color' : 'Red', 'background-color' : 'Blue' } }

And the following content (place the caret somewhere inside the <h3>:

<h3 style="color: red; background-color: blue;">
	This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href="">CKEditor</a>.</h3>

Open the styles combo. Both "Red title" and "Red title with blue background" are marked as focused, while only "red title" is presented in the combo label. IMO the label should read "Red title with blue background".

#7239 Upload file and adobe air pending Bug Normal

Hi On air, the file uploader doesn't appears I have to precise that a <input type = "file" /> is properly rendered in air

#11007 Incorrect display of URL, file path including bidi data pending Bug Normal


Display of text on the screen is governed by Unicode Bidi Algorithm (UBA). This is true for both platform level rendering, web browser rendering and CKEditor rendering. UBA provides good results for plain text but fails to preserve structured in case of structured text includes bidi (Arabic / Hebrew) characters. UBA provide various tools (i.e. Unicode Control Characters) which can be used to instruct it about structure of the text. Using those tools we can achieve perfect display.

CKEditor context

In CKEditor we see following types of structured text:

  1. File paths
  1. URL

When Bidi data is used as part of those cases, the display of data is completely incomprehensible. For example: c:\AAA\BBB\Aa\file.txt (capital letters refer to Bidi letters) will be displayed as: c:\A\BBB\AAAa\file.txt As you can see not only the order of folders names but also their integrity is violated. Judging by appearance, you would think that top most folder is A, while in reality it is AAA. You would also think that there is a folder AAAa, while in reality there is no such folder.

#11166 Mirror editor if using divarea with a JavaScript loader pending Bug Normal

I have discovered a pretty weird issue causing the creation of a double editor, let's call it "Mirror Editor".

The setup:

  • CKEditor 4 (confirmed for 4.0 - 4.3, including custom built from Git)
  • JavaScript loader (self-made/head.js/LABjs)
  • jQuery Adapter
  • divarea Plugin

I need to make use of a JavaScript loader because CKEditor is sometimes dynamically loaded from a remote host, forcing me to use a dependent loader with callback. It is worth noting, that this issue is raised even if the files are loaded from the same host.

The issue is caused by a race condition, we're creating an CKEditor instance by using a custom config passed to $(...).ckeditor($config). Meanwhile the other scripts on the page finished executing and CKEditor's callbacks for domReady are executed. One of these callbacks invokes inlineAll() which normally isn't much of a big deal, but since we're using the divarea plugin, it happens to sometimes trigger it on the editor in creation.

As a result we end up with two editors (the 2nd one has a generic ID and element.$ = div.cke_wysiwyg_div) which are unaware of each other and ultimately breaking everything, even the toolbars overlap.

It is worth noting, that the issue is not always reproducible, usually 1 of 3 page loads result in the broken editor(s).

To solve this issue I'm setting CKEDITOR.disableAutoInline = true; immediately after CKEditor has loaded to prevent this double creation.

You can see this issue on the attached screenshot, the editor with the grayed-out buttons is the mirror editor (2nd created) and you can clearly see the "real" editor hidden below it. Once it loses focus, the 2nd editor becomes invisible.

#11714 [iOS] Slowness when CKEditor is within an inline-block element on iPad pending Bug Normal

#12083 placeholder plugin - inline editor - text align break html of the page pending Bug Normal

Hi, I tried using placeholder plugin in a ckeditor inline version in Chrome (Windows 8 64 bit, chrome version 35.0.1916.114 m). If I put one placeholder at the end of the content of a textarea and then I try to modify many times text-aling property (changing to left, right, justify, center randomly), then the html of the page breaks up.

Can you explain that? It does not happen in Firefox (version 29.0.1)

Many thanks Daniele

#12250 Cannot disable auto inline functionality when CKEditor is being loaded via Ajax pending Bug Normal


It seems it is not possible to disable the auto inline functionality when CKEditor is being loaded via Ajax. This is because DOM is ready on the moment CKEditor executes the following code:

CKEDITOR.domReady( function() {
    !CKEDITOR.disableAutoInline && CKEDITOR.inlineAll();
} );

I cannot set CKEDITOR.disableAutoInline before that, because CKEDITOR does not exist in window yet.

Is there a way to resolve this nasty issue?

#12314 Entermode inconsistencies pending Bug Normal

I'm using inline mode, enterMode : CKEDITOR.ENTER_DIV

1) Slap a heap of divs into the editor 2) Hit enter anywhere, a new div is created (is this by design?) 3) Ctrl-A, Del 4) Use source button to verify editor is indeed "empty" 5) Use blocks plugin to verify editor is not actually empty, but has a dummy div holder 6) Hit Enter, divs are still created 7) Use source to set <p></p> for content 8) Hit Enter, <p>s are created now

Problems: 1) Is the enter-in-div=div by design? 2) There should be a way to go back to <p> mode between divs 3) The dummy container created for an empty editor should fall back to <p> if editor is indeed empty

#12718 Error on destroying editor, detached from DOM. pending Bug Normal

If you remove editor container from DOM and then call editor.destroy(), you got exception, because CKEditor assumes frameElement of editable is available. But element.frameElement is null.

#12749 iOS 8 iPad screen scrolls back to top when typing into CKEditor pending Bug Normal

I have a report where I wait for user input before creating a textarea object in jquery and turning it into a CKEditor instance. This works beautifully on IE 10/11, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari on Desktops but when we test on an iPad iOS 8 users have an issue typing into the editor.

When a user starts to type, the entire view scrolls back to the top of the page away from editor. The text still gets entered and after scrolling the page back down the user can see editor with their new text.

Plugins Using: autogrow clipboard colordialog dialog find link pastefromword

I'm hoping since I can't find another post/ticket on this topic it is a configuration or css setting conflicting with CKEditor. Any help would be beneficial.

PS: Some browsers on the iPad only scroll back to top when pressing the space button.

#13087 How to unfocus newly created CKEditor widgets pending Task Normal

I'm not sure whether its an issue with CKEditor or an error on my part but this is the issue that I'm facing:

  • I insert some HTML using a custom CKEditor command
  • That element is upcasted to a custom CKEditor widget
  • Focus is on the widget

Now, if an user wants to add some text or something else, one has to explicitly click on the red "Add new paragraph" thingy at the bottom of the widget. Now, my question is that can we automatically add that new paragraph after the widget? From what it seems to me, the issue is that the newly created widget is in focus and hence no other text can be added.

Please let me know how to fix this issue.

#13380 Alert messages in RTL mode are not mirrored pending Bug Normal

(tested on IE11 and FF)

Impact on all languages: text is not translated in the message box (i.e. text on the button) unless web browser itself is translated to that language.

Impact on bidi languages: message boxes are not mirrored / flipped unless web browser itself is translated to Arabic / Hebrew.

This behavior has a pretty serious impact on user experience, since there are around 18 contexts in which alert message is called.

We suggest to contribute a solution by developing a general modal message box in pure JS which will address all the needs currently addressed by alert dialog.

Do you agree that this issue should be fixed? If so, do you accept the suggested approach to the solution?

Thank you

#13627 [bidi] Structure text is not supported in URL fields in Insert image dialogs pending Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a drag-able widget.
  2. Have a paragraph with left and right margins after it.
  3. Drag the widget and hover between the widget and the paragraph.

Expected result

Actual result

The line starts at the start of the paragraph content but is the width of the widget.

#14518 On IE11, data-bound elements in dialog are not updated when clicking OK pending Bug Normal

Perhaps related to Issue 14517, but this one only happens on IE. On Safari and Firefox, there is no issue. The testcase uses a very simple example of knockout.js to bind an html input element to a value in a viewModel. It seems that because ckeditor tries to manage all aspects of focus and blur, something is lost (on IE only) when the OK button is clicked and the input field loses focus.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Download the attached plug-in to plugins folder, and add to config.js

config.extraPlugins = 'bugplugin';

  1. Run index.html, adjusting paths to require.js and knockout.js as needed
  2. Follow the simple testcase on-screen, basically change a value and click OK.

Expected result

Alert should show the value you just entered into Input1.

Actual result

On IE11, the current value is not shown . The old value is shown.

#16780 selectElement and/or extractSelectedHtml work differently in Chrome and Safari pending Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. I have the following html:
     <p>Some text...</p>
          More text ...

I am trying to replace the <question> element with another html string.

  1. My code:
// here element is an instance of CKEDITOR.dom.element.
// Its nodeName property is 'QUESTION' in all browsers

  1. This works fine in Chrome and Firefox but doesn't work in Safari.

In Safari I get the following error when running extractSelectedHtml: TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'a.startContainer.getDtd()'). The inner html of the <question> element gets deleted, but the <question> tag itself stays.

I tried to check what editor.getSelectedHtml method returns in Chrome and Safari. In Chrome it returns CKEditor.dom.documentFragment with question as firstChild, and in Safari it returns CKEditor.dom.documentFragment with answer (inner node) as firstChild.

Expected result

I would expect my code snippet to produce the same result in all browsers.

Is this working as intended? Is there any workaround for this issue in Safari?

#16807 Pasting widgets with the clipboard plugin under firefox removes some classes. pending Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open the ckeditor with firefox, copy a widget with more html.
  2. Click right button on the editor, then paste from the dropdown.
  3. The paste dialog is shown, then press Ctrl+V to paste it in the dialog and click OK.

Expected result

The widget should be inserted with all its classes, same content, and same styles.

Actual result

All elements are present but some of their classes are removed, the style is not the same. I've debugged the paste dialog and in the event 'pasteDialogCommit', { dataValue: html }) - the dataValue contains all necessary elements and their classes. However when the widget is inserted and I inspect its elements it seems some of their classes are removed.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

It works perfectly under chrome, IE and Safari.

#16827 Container span with drag handle being added to widget after updating to 4.6.1 pending Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

  1. Add some form of widget into a ckeditor
  2. Switch to source view and back again

Expected result

Should be the same as before going into source mode

Actual result

It added a container span around the element as well as an image after it that looks like a drag handle. Repeatedly switching between source and html adds more wrappers and more drag handle images, some of which end up being block-level. These elements persist after saving the content of the ckeditor and viewing it outside this context, e.g. the iframe that gets added into the content we're editing can be selected like a ckeditor element even outside of ckeditor.

Other details (browser, OS, CKEditor version, installed plugins)

Tested in chrome and edge. Bug did not happen in 4.5.x, it only took place after updating to 4.6.x.

Has widget plugin installed, both the 4.5.x version and the 4.6.x version exhibit the same behaviour.

The widget in question is a custom google maps plugin which is supposed to output an iframe in a wrapping div. It also takes place when using the oembed plugin, which uses a widget.

#16828 copy/paste duplicate text bug pending Bug Normal

Sometimes when I perform a Copy/Paste from txt file into the CKEDITOR (latest version), the text gets copied multiple times.(2-6-8-10 times) and the browser also freezes when this happens. But this only happens after long periods of use, with a considerable amount of text and it's hard to reproduce.

I'm wondering if there is any way we can prevent this from happening even though we don't really know what the cause of it is.

Any help would be much appreciated.

#16939 Unable to maintain scroll position after postback pending Bug Normal

I'm using the CKEditor 4.6.2 control in a .Net 4.0 web application. I'm experiencing an issue where the correct scroll position is not maintained after performing a postback on large web form containing multiple CKEditor controls. When a button is clicked, the page performs a postback and the screen appears to return to the correct scroll position but then appears to jump up a few spaces for no apparent reason. This issue only occurs when a postback is triggered towards the bottom of a large web form. It does not occur if a postback is triggered in the top half of large web form or on a small web page. We are experiencing this issue in IE 11.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a large web form using .net 4.0.
  2. Add multiple CKEditor controls to the page.
  3. Click a button to trigger a page postback.

Expected result

We expect the correct scroll position to be maintained after performing a postback. The size of the web page should not affect scroll positioning.

Actual result

The page will return to the correct scroll position but will jump up immediately after.

#16953 On adding links it fails first time and duplicates text 2nd time pending Bug Normal

Steps to reproduce

Secenario : I am using ckeditor in inline mode in a angular project. The ckeditor is added using the angular-ckeditor directive ( HTML:

<div class="section-editor" ckeditor="options" ng-model="section.content" contenteditable="true" ready="ckeditorOnReady($instance)" ></div>
  1. I select a text (Example towards) and do add link. The popup opens I add my url. On doing OK, Sometimes on first click it does not work and produces an error in console (error attached). On again doing OK it works, but in the ckeditor I see 2 times my text (towards). Once with the right url and once just plain text.

Expected result

The link should be added in first attempt without any error

Actual result

Sometimes the link doesnt get inserted in the first attempt and there is an error in console.

#513 Implement source view with rich text area (designMode=on) new New Feature Normal

Implement the source view as an IFRAME with designMode=on (using FCKEditingArea), instead of using the <textarea>.

This change would give us many new possibilities to enhance the source view, like source code coloring, automatic selection positioning, and other features that could be implemented by using the DOM only.

Before doing this, we need to discuss all pros and cons of it, and the real possibility to implement it on browsers.

#590 Cluster toolbar items into dropdowns new New Feature Normal

Yahoo Mail has a wysiwyg editor for composing emails, and its toolbar has only one icon for alignment which drops down for left/right/centre/justify. same with bullets. Also, the colour selector, font, font size, and smilies all use the same system.

Its doesn't overwhelm the user with buttons. simple like plucking fruit from a tree!

There's another sourceforge project which does the same little dropdown windowing system: Not fckn half as good as fckeditor tho.

#667 [SS] Combination of a link and a style new Bug Normal

Following situation:


  • developer runtime (uncompiled scripts)
  • fckstyles.xml
<Style name="Fat link" element="a">
    <Attribute name="class" value="aBold" />
  1. there is nothing more in the editor then 2 plain words without any formatting
  2. select one word and create a hyperlink using toolbar "Insert/Edit link"
  3. enter some target as usual, the hyperlink is created
  4. now while the text is still selected choose the "Fat link" from the toolbar style pulldown menu

IE behavior

crashes with

Unknown runtime error
Line 28 in fckstyledef_ie.js > e.innerHTML =
oRange.htmlText ;
May be it is a IE bug...

FF behaviour

Firefox has 2 conditions

  1. if the text is still selected it messes up the code
New document -> New <a class="aBold"><a
href="bala.ccc/" />
  1. if the word has been re-selected it is ok (problem with selection cache?)

In both browsers if the style choise is done first, there are no problems.

This problem is not as big in new documents as in old stuff where hyperlinks exist and have to be "re-styled" or modified.

Best regards

After enlarging the range with a block unit with the following input:

#4380 Listblock: Stylename containing single quote will crash onclick method new Bug Normal

When a style contains a single quote in its title, it will crash the listblock.

Offending code (plugins/listblock/plugin.js):

add : function( value, html, title )
	var pendingHtml = this._.pendingHtml,
		id = 'cke_' +;

	if ( !this._.started )

#5025 Approach for backward compatibility new Task Normal

This is due to the patch in #4973, but it was a long talk that would distract from the real patch.

The patch in #4972 (v2) removes CKEDITOR.loadStylesSet and CKEDITOR.addStylesSet, so when people tries to upgrade they will get an error if they have used them.

I think that most of the people didn't know anything about CKEDITOR.loadStylesSet unless they had to fight with the lack of CKEDITOR.stylesSet as I did, but I think that there's lots of people using their own styles with the addStylesSet call. If they don't change the code then it will fail and they have to find out the reason.

So my question is: how do we approach backwards compatibility?

We can leave the code as is and they have to read the release notes to notice the reason of the problem. This can be more complex if they are upgrading for example from 3.0 to 3.3 with hundreds of bugs in the mean time.

We can add bold and red statements in the what's new to make it clearer, but they still have to read the docs.

We can provide also a "compatibility" plugin that it's used just to provide compatibility with older apis. This plugin could define just the old functions as mapping to the new APIs and launch a silent warning in the console (if it exists)

Something along these lines:

CKEDITOR.addStylesSet = function( name, styles ) 
    if (window.console)
        window.console("The CKEDITOR.addStylesSet function has been deprecated. Please use CKEDITOR.stylesSet.add. Read... for further info");
    CKEDITOR.stylesSet.add(name, styles)

This way the upgrade is easier, there's a very little overhead and people can remove the plugin when they know that everything is working OK.

#5600 Create new block Format to end PRE at start of line new New Feature Normal

People usually don't know anything about html tags, they just want things to work, so as long as it's possible we should try to think like a new user and how the expect the editor to behave.

In order to end a PRE-formatted paragraph I think that it's easy to expect that just selecting "Normal" in the format dropdown should start a new paragraph and get out of the pre if the caret is at the start of a new line. This would work in a similar way to the Bold button: you press to start marking things as bold and when you press it again you end the effect.

#5621 [IE] 32-bit windows has broken document.domain for IPv6 address, causing access denied errors new Bug Normal

This issue is partly related to #5434. On a 64-bit server, the fix for #5434 works but on a 32-bit server a different error occurs.

The issue is that 32-bit IE does not appear to support IPv6 addresses correctly, especially when getting document.domain. IE truncates the ip address when it reaches the first colon ":" in the address. This causes "access denied" errors when new IFrames are opened by CKEditor.

On (32-bit) IE:

document.domain = "[fe80:"
window.location.hostname = "fe80::fe80:fe80:fe80:fe80" 

A work-around is required for this IE bug.

#5692 Handle file dropping in editor new New Feature Normal

Provide a plugin to detect desktop file dropping into editor, for those support browsers.
The detected file info could be used to upload the file immediately or perform any possible customization.

Edit: Yes that is most correct. Editor should have at least a hook for implementing drag&drop into editor. What I mean is that if editor is connected with file uploader (like CKFinder) it should prepare image information that uploader can use to upload file. After file is uploaded, uploader should send new image path and editor should apply it.

#6602 Automatically send WYSIWYG browsers into source mode instead of refusing to work new New Feature Normal

Browsers that don't support tag editing still support ckeditor's source mode, which is better than nothing, and provides a more gradual operational decline.

#6937 Applying Block Quote to empty or the only paragraph in Table cell applying Block Quote to Table instead of Table Cell or Paragraph in Table Cell new Bug Normal

To reproduce the defect:

Scenario 1:

  1. Open CK Editor and insert a Table.
  1. Keep cursor inside a Table Cell and click on Block Quote icon.

Expected Result:

Block Quote is applied to Table Cell.

Actual Result:

Block Quote is applied to whole Table.

Scenario 2:

  1. Open CK Editor and insert a Table.
  1. Type some text inside a Table Cell, select the paragraph and click on Block Quote icon.

Expected Result:

Block Quote is applied to the selected paragraph inside Table Cell.

Actual Result:

Block Quote is applied to whole Table.

#7206 Provide support to load CKEditor in one frame and render it in another new New Feature Normal

We would like to request support to load CKEditor in one frame and render it in another. This would be a very beneficial feature for optimising performance. It is currently not supported. Some issues that they have reported so far regarding this are:

  • does not support multiple frames
  • core/loader.js calls current document object

A sample test case is attached which demonstrates the desired functionality.

Instructions for running the test case:

  1. Copy the attached files to <CKEditor>\_samples directory.
  1. Open multiframe.html on Mozilla/Firefox.
  1. Press "Create Widgets" button.
  1. Verify CKEditor is created.
  1. Modify Widget_CKEditor.prototype.createEditorElem in multiframe.js like this:

// NG
loader.oDocument = globals.scriptFrame.document;

// OK
//loader.oDocument = globals.uiFrame.document;
  1. Open multiframe.html on Mozilla/Firefox.
  1. Press "Create Widgets" button.

Problem: CKEditor instance is not created in UI Frame.

#7229 Request for relaying cut and copy events to the editor instance new New Feature Normal

Request for normalizing cut, copy and paste events in the editor across browsers. In version 3.5.2 only the 'paste' event is relayed to the editor object. Would be very convenient if 'cut' and 'copy' could also be relayed.

The specific use case is having to add attributes to the elements in a selection prior to cutting/copying. These are then parsed when pasted back into the editor.

Some quick research gave me the following summary:

I ran the following code in each of the browsers' developer tools

var body = CKEDITOR.instances.editor1.document.getBody();
var logger = function (name) {
    return function () {console.log(name);};
body.on('beforepaste', logger('beforepaste'));
body.on('paste', logger('paste'));
body.on('beforecut', logger('beforecut'));
body.on('cut', logger('cut'));
body.on('beforecopy', logger('beforecopy'));
body.on('copy', logger('copy'));

and registered the events fired:

Opera Version: 11.00, Build: 1156, WinXP

Cut: none
Copy: none

Google Chrome 9.0.597.98, WinXP


Firefox 3.6.13, WinXP


IE8, Windows Server 2003


IE also fires extra unlisted ones due to calling "queryCommandEnabled('paste')" in clipboard plugin.

#8260 Change from raising error to show an alert if instance exists new Bug Normal

Split from #8226

I think that many new users don't realize that they have errors in the console (after all IE is the only browser that currently shows clearly when a page has a js error). We must remember that many people aren't javascript developers, that's why they use things like the or Java adapters, they just know how to work at the server side and when they try to copy some javascript code as shown in some examples and doesn't work they don't understand what's the problem.

So I strongly suggest to change throw '[CKEDITOR.editor] The instance "' + + '" already exists.'; to alert('[CKEDITOR.editor] The instance "' + + '" already exists.'); }

#9271 Merge Columns new New Feature Normal

The merge and add row/column function provided is too basic . Merge a row of 10 columns needs 10 individual click to merge.

Step 1: User adds a Table with 10 columns and 3 rows. by clicking on the “Insert/Edit” Table functionality Step 2: User wants to merge the column for the table created. If the user wants to merge the columns C, D, E, and F, the user needs to perform the following steps:

  • Click each cell and right click to select “Cell”
  • Merge Right.

Problem: The user needs to perform multiple clicks in order to perform a simple merging of columns in the table. If the table has multiple columns and rows and some of the columns within certain rows need to be merged then it becomes very time-consuming.

Requested Solution: The customer expects a much more easier functionality like creating a “Table” in Microsoft Word.

#9460 [iOS] CKE4 nighly build; Selection lost when selecting font menu new Bug Normal

On the latest version of iOS 6, on the iPad 2 you cannot use the Rich Combo Fields, you lose your selection and the style is not applied. Steps to reproduce;

  1. Access the nightly build demo site on device (At the time of writing):
  2. Create a selection around some text (doesn't matter what text is selected, just that there is a selection of text)
  3. Tap on the 'Font' menu

Page "jumps up", selection is lost but menu appears. Cannot tap on any item in the menu, tapping on the menu items causes the menu to disappear and restore the cursor on the editor. Selection is lost; cursor seems to appear where you attempted to tap on the menu item.

Expected result:
The menu should work like the desktop experience.

#9486 Using CKEDITOR.templates for stylesheets new Bug Normal

In Moono skin we used CKEDITOR.templates to create content of CSS stylesheet. CSS uses '{' and it's also part of our wildcard, so we had to use trick to make it work.

There are couple of solutions:

  1. Escaping '{' by e.g. doubling. Note that escaping with '\' is not possible because it's also escape character in JS string.
  2. Specifying more precise regexp for template's wildcards, so e.g. only [a-zA-Z0-9]+ will be accepted.
  3. Changing wildcard format.

Solution first is ok, because it's backward compatible, but we will have to add more characters in our templates making them longer and less readable.

Third solution completely breaks backward compatibility so it's bad.

Second solution isn't fully backward compatible, but should work in 99% of cases (if we'll make good pattern) and it doesn't enlarge template and doesn't make it less readable.

#9774 HasPatch adding a body wrapper (usefull for adding (invisible) css wrappers) new New Feature Normal

This is a patch on ckeditor 3.6.2. (this is a new feature and not actually a bugfix, I call it a patch because it involves editing an existing pluging file)

This patch allows inserting html source into the wysiwyg iframe area, which you can NOT edit in the editor itself, is NOT saved in the real source, but WILL allow you to modify the appearance of the wysiwyg editor. It does this by inserting (both prepending and appending) html in the body tag of the wysiwyg editor. (Note: it only works for the NON-FULLPAGE version. luckily, you won't need it for the fullpage config.)

for example, you can add <div id="x" class="y">...</div> wrappers so included css files will work.

I use it to insert html blocks quite deep into a fairly complex website and it still works like a charm.



body#mybodyid.mybodyclass div#myIdcontainer  div.myclasscontainer1{float:right;}
body#mybodyid.mybodyclass div#myIdcontainer  div.myclasscontainer1 div.myclasscontainer2{color:#f00;font-weight:bold;}

#9855 Better context checking for toolbar buttons new New Feature Normal

There is room the enhance the context checking we do for several toolbar buttons. While the current approach is correct, it can be optimized to better fit user's intentions, helping on the UI usability.

Let's open a discussion and analise all possible cases first.

#9928 [iOS] creating form disables text entering new Bug Normal


When using iOS to create a form, the keyboard is disabled.


  1. Use iOS5+

#9937 [iOS] CKEditor 3.6.3 (revision 7474) - iOS6 iPad - CK editor textarea lost the focus new Bug Normal

When user clicks in the middle of the ckditor text-area, try to type-in, only the first key pressed character is added to the text-area & text-area immediately lost the focus so keyboard hides before user press another key.

Strange thing is when user click on top place of ckeditor textarea OR click between the already written text and try to type-in, it works fine and focus remain in text-area.

Top area means, the area of <p> tag generated by the ckeditor by default.
