#12995 copied text inserted multiple times pending Bug Normal

In some cases , when i paste data in ckeditor the text copied is duplicated multiple times (2 , 4 sometimes 8 ) . The same issues occurs sometimes with the insertText Method : ex : the code is insertText('beep') ---> the text inserted is 'beep beep beep beep'.

Unfortunately the issue is rare and i straggle to reproduce it everytime . Tho , I noticed that this behaviour may occur after heavy use of ckeditor (paste large amout of text etc etc ) .

In thoses cases when i debug the ckeditor i see many listners to insertText event (in the normal flow i see just one ) .

I guess in some heavier use of ckeditor , the same listner to insertText is register multiple times causing this weired behaviour .

Even if the reason may be not clear , I wonder if there is some workaround like reinitialize all listners before setting text .

Any help whould be truly appreciated since this bug is random and may affect clients data .

#12999 IE 11 support pending Task Normal

Hello. I have conducted IE 11 support/compatibility test, and found multiple defects in CKEditor.

Some of the potential problems l found inlude: use of MISE, http-equiv="Content-Type", alpha, Document.all, onreadystatechange, readyState, and createStyleSheet. All of these were found in package.js file, or in wicket-event-ver-14xxx.js file.

Please review the source to eliminate all the component that does not guarantee the support for IE 11.

#13016 lang.js: that[ languageCode ].dir is undefined pending Bug Normal

After line 53 in file core/lang.js the following code is found:

that[ languageCode ].dir = that.rtl[ languageCode ] ? 'rtl' : 'ltr';

This fails because that[ languageCode ] have not been defined yet. This can be fixed by adding:

if(!that[ languageCode ]) {
					that[ languageCode ] = {};

before that.

#13047 <figure> in stylesSet does not wrap <img> pending Bug Normal

I define this in config:

stylesSet	: [ { name: 'Figure', element: 'figure' } ]

In the editor, when I select an image (<img>) and then select "Figure" from the styles list, I get this (view source):

<figure alt="" src="img.jpg"> </figure>

...instead of this:

<figure><img alt="" src="img.jpg"></figure>

There's something wrong with <figure> treatment in the editor, because if I change "figure" to "span" in stylesSet, the image gets nicely wrapped.

#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.

#13113 Demo site issue: insert consecutive links pending Bug Normal

Placing the cursor immediately after a link and attempting to insert a second link causes the original link to be replaced.

I can recreate this on in the following browsers:

  • Chrome 41
  • Firefox 36.0.4
  • IE 11

Steps to recreate on demo site:

  1. Place cursor immediately after "Buzz Aldrin" link, before comma (shown in screenshot)
  2. Click on Toolbar link icon
  3. Attempt to insert a link to Google

You will see that the "Buzz Aldrin" link is replaced with a link to Google, instead of the "Buzz Aldrin" link remaining and a second link to Google being added.

Please note that if you insert a space after the "Buzz Aldrin" link, and then click on the Toolbar link icon and create a link to Google, it will behave as expected/desired (2 separate links).

#13285 Focus makes editor scroll to top on Firefox 38 pending Bug Normal

Whenever editable.js' focus() is called, editor scrolls to top on Firefox 38. This does not happen on Chrome or IE. What is strange is that I can't reproduce this on the demo.

The line that causes this is line 77:

this.$[ && this.getDocument().equals( CKEDITOR.document ) ? 'setActive' : 'focus' ]();
#13307 Uncaught IndexSizeError: Failed to execute 'extend' on 'Selection': 1... in Blink-browsers pending Bug Normal

Seemingly at random, I get this exception when calling editor.getData() in my application. The error message is identical to #12727, but I believe it is a different bug since I use neither Div Editing Area or Content Template plugin.

I haven't been able to reproduce the bug myself, but I'm using a bugtracking tool with a console recorder in the public version of my application that tells me that the error occurs quite frequently. It seems to be a Blink-only problem and has been around since 4.4.6 at least.

Screenshot and build-config attached. I'll try switching to an uncompressed version of CKEditor to see if I can get some more info from the console recorder.

#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

#3358 Optimize 'CKEDITOR.dom.range.enlarge' on block unit new Task Normal

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


We'll got:


No we got a partially selected block, it's better to have the 'div' been fully selected to prevent consequence operation like extractContent from resulting in unwanted node pieces, so an optimized result would be the following:

#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 )
		pendingHtml.push( '<ul class=cke_panel_list>' );
		this._.started = 1;

	this._.items[ value ] = id;

		'<li id=', id, ' class=cke_panel_listItem>' +

				' href="javascript:void(\'', value, '\')"' +
				' onclick="', this._.getClick(), ',\'', value, '\'); return false;">',
				html || value,
			'</a>' +
		'</li>' );

As you can see, 'value' is passed verbatim into the pendingHtml array, which doesn't do anything to escape single quotes.

#5009 Context sub-menu items should not hide other context menu items new Bug Normal

Create an editor instance that spans the with of the screen.
Create a table with 100% width.
Move the mouse to the right hand side of the editor and right click on the table.
Observe the context menu correctly displays as fixed in #4594.
Open a sub-menu, e.g. Cell Properties.
Observe that the sub-menu covers the main context menu.

#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.

#5497 allow 'grouping' in Styles to be configurable new New Feature Normal

My clients find it confusing when the styles, listed in the "Styles" plugin, are grouped by style type.

I created a patch for "stylescombo\plugin.js"

#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.

#5768 List plugin: request for preserving paragraphs when creating a list new New Feature Normal

Version 3.3 added support for preserving heading structure when creating a list item. Would be nice to also preserve structure when creating list items from paragraphs.

#5938 Enter into dt/dd elements should toggle these tags new New Feature Normal

Enter at the end of DT element should create new DD element and vice versa.

#5967 Font-Families should be enclosable in quotes new Bug Normal

Font-Families as specified by CSS, should be enclosed in quotes in certain circumstances. The guy in this forum post appears to have run into one such circumstance.

In IE8 simply encolsing the font with \'Font name\' doesn't work. That's also not really a solution in the first place since it causes some weird issues with being able to select the font and having the correct font show in the rich combo box in other browsers.

I don't think fonts should always be encolsed in quotes, but there has to be some criterion we could use to wrap fonts which require it and to have accurate comparisons. Without such functionality certain fonts become inaccessible.

#5998 Sample config.js file (config.sample.js perhaps) new Task Normal

It is sometimes very confortible to have a prepared config file where You could see all the available configuration (commented out) and its documentation without having to go online and search what configuration parts are worth to be added to some particular project (it takes less time to go through config text file).

I have made such sample configuration file and would like to suggest to add it to the project. It is based on the official documentation and at the moment - up to date. In the first usage examples I have placed default values instead of writting them seperately.

#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.

My suggested patch creates a env.isTextCompatible var, and if env.isCompatible is false but env.isTextCompatible is true, ckeditor defaults to a text entry mode with limited, but still existent functionality.

#6725 Mismatch between dialog::resize and dialog::getSize new Bug Normal

While working on #5084 I've noticed that there's a mismatch between the two methods.
The reason is that we use the contents element in the dialog::resize method, while we use the dialog element in the dialog::getSize method.

#6931 Form creation behaviour new Bug Normal

IMO forms creation should be much like DIV creation, wrapping the selection rather than removing it.

#6934 Alternative style/format outlook new New Feature Normal

Style combo item is not presented under the preview style of the each style definition (same with format combo), sometimes this isn't an option at all (seen on user request #6379), the editor should allow an alternative presentation to be provided in the following format:

		name : 'Colored: White',
		element : 'span',
		styles : { 'color' : 'White' },
		displayHtml: '<span style="background-color:#000;color:#fff;">Colored:White</span>'

#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.

#7120 Line Spacing Button new New Feature Normal

#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.'); }

#8705 [iOS] Caret (cursor) may not appear when typing is enabled new Bug Normal

#9011 CKFinder doesn't allow Select, Download or Upload options new Bug Normal

Using iOS5.1 on the iPad.

In any CKEditor instance, when clicking the Browse Server button CKFinder opens in a new Tab.

  1. The "Upload" button is missing and should be next to the "Refresh" button. I understand this is because of lack of iOS support of input type=file.
  1. When you try to choose a file to link to via the context menu drop down (push the down arrow in the upper left corner of the thumbnail), you can Delete, View, Resize and Rename but you cannot Select or Download.

#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.

#9402 [iOS] keyboard gets closed after Paste in the editor new Bug Normal

#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.

#9526 [IE] Selection is not properly reflected on startup new Bug Normal
  1. Load the replacebyclass in IE;
  2. Check the toolbar status without focusing the document;
  • Actual: the toolbar is not properly given the initial states as in other browsers.
  • Expected: the toolbar should reflects the selection as if it's anchored at the start of document, this works for Firefox and Webkit.
#9556 [iOS] Can't fully exit out of list and continue adding text to editor in iOS 6.0.1 new Bug Normal

iOS6.0.1 create an ordered list


  1. lions
  2. tigers
  3. mountain lions

After the last item hit enter twice. xit the list. Start typing, the focus seems to wrap down from the last list item and what I was typing got wrapped up to the last list item rather than remaining as a new line below the list. I see this behavior when the spell check is active on the text I am typing on the new line.

I have a video demonstrating this behavior.

#9614 Tabletools insert column before behavior is confusing new a.nowodzinski Bug Normal

I'm a little bit concerned about the expected behavior of "insert column before" for the following case:

| 1.1 | 1.2^ |
| 2.1 |

How it works now:

| 1.1 | &nbsp; | 1.2^ |
| 2.1 |

How it should look like in my opition:

| 1.1 | &nbsp; | 1.2^ |
| 2.1 | &nbsp; |

Most likely this is not an issue but it brings some confusion. The origin of this issue is in #9609.

#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;}


	var myckconfig = {
		contentsCss : 'site.css?1234',	
		bodyId      : 'mybodyid',
		bodyClass   : 'mybodyclass',
		bodyPrepend : '<div id="myIdcontainer"><div class="myclasscontainer1"><div class="myclasscontainer2">',
		bodyAppend  : '</div><br style="clear:both;" /></div></div>',

#9849 Orphan <br> should be transformed into <p><br></p> new Bug Normal

We do several inline elements fixing that are found orphan inside body. This was true for <br> as well, until we reverted a fix that was causing #9167.

Because of that, I've commented out a test made for that case form dt/core/htmlparser/fragment.html, test name "test_parser_13".

It is still unclear for me the cases for this fix, but considering that we were used to do so, we should keep doing it.

I'm just unsure if this is necessary.

#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.

One good example for that is related to object selections. There is no much sense on having inline styles, like bold, enabled when an image is selected.

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+
  2. Load the Full-featured demo (ie, 5 line toolbar)
  3. Clear the content using Source View.
  4. Switch to wysiwyg and click the Form button
  5. Insert a form and move your cursor inside of it
  6. Insert a text field in the form.

Expected result:

The cursor should be positioned after the new field and I should be able to enter new text using my keyboard.

Actual result:

The cursor is positioned after the field but I can type away and no characters are entered.

#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.

#10101 afterUndo and afterRedo are fired on the commands new alfonsoml Bug Normal

There are two events "afterUndo" and "afterRedo" that seem like good ways to be notified about when an undo/redo operation is performed but they are trickier to use because they aren't fired on the editor but on the commands themselves:

			var undoCommand = editor.addCommand( 'undo',
					exec : function()
						if ( undoManager.undo() )
							editor.selectionChange(); 'afterUndo' );
					canUndo : false

			var redoCommand = editor.addCommand( 'redo',
					exec : function()
						if ( undoManager.redo() )
							editor.selectionChange(); 'afterRedo' );
					canUndo : false

if instead of "" the code is "" then they can be used in a normal way.

I think that this is just a typo that no one has realized so far (after all these events aren't documented in any way)

I don't think that anyone is using the current events so it shouldn't be a problem to correct them.

I guess that you won't bother about fixing this in 3.6 so I'll create a patch just for 4.0

#10180 [iOS] iPad issue with Dropdown Menus new Bug Normal

#10239 Tabletools: add ability to set scope in cell attributes dialog new New Feature Normal


I was very happy to see how well CKE handles the creation of tables, and its half-automated way of creating table headers, which are essential for table accessibility, esp. for screen readers.

While CKE does a good job in "guessing" the correct directionality of table header scope, it doesn't get them right all the time, and also does not automatically create scope="colgroup" or scope="rowgroup" on merged header cells.

Thus, it would be great if you could add a dropdown to the cell attributes dialog that allows the user to specify the correct scope of a header cell (row|col|rowgroup|colgroup) without having to switch to code view, which is often overwhelming for "mere" content editors.

This dropdown would be perfectly placed following the dropdown with which one can set a cell as data or header cell.

Hoping you can take this option into consideration for the next release, and thanking you in advance!

#10669 CKEditor follows links in WebKit-based browsers, replacing the iframe content new Bug Normal

Tested under qtwebkit 2.3.1, qtwebkit 2.3.2, qt5-webkit from Qt 5.1.0, and Safari on iPad.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open
  2. Hover any link in the editable content with the mouse pointer.
  3. Click the hovered link.

What should happen (as it does in, for example, Firefox 22.0):

  1. The cursor icon should be «text».
  2. The link should not open, the input caret should move to the clicked point.

What happens:

  1. The cursor is «pointer» (checked in qtwebkit).
  2. The link opens in the editor iframe and replaces all the content, resulting in data loss.

Workaround (jQuery-based):

/// WARNING: bloody fix for WebKit-based browsers
CKEDITOR.on('instanceReady', function(ev) {
	if (!CKEDITOR.env.webkit) return;
	function disableLinks() {
		var content = $(ev.editor.document.$.defaultView.frameElement).contents();
		content.find('body.cke_editable').on('click', 'a', function() {

#10694 [iOS] Editing in ipad scrolling issue new Bug Normal

Editing scrolled content using the ipad is very erratic and impossible to use in some cases. There needs to be plenty of content so the editor needs to scroll. This can easily be reproduced using the standard editor demo page at

Using an ipad, go to the standard editor demo page and scroll down a bit to the editor. Then scroll to the bottom of the content, place the cursor at the end and begin typing. Hit enter a few times to create a few new lines and type some more content.

You should notice that the scroll position of the page jumps around and the scroll position of the content jumps around too. There does not seem to be consistency of what happens when and I have had a couple of times when it seemed stable but refreshing the page and trying again caused the issue to reappear.

Tested on an ipad2 with iOS 6.1.3

#10750 The editor don't unquote the font-family style property new Bug Normal

Hopefully I'm missing something here, but here it goes:

I came across a problem where fonts with names like 'My Crazy Sans -32432 W10' doesn't work properly. Looking into it noticed that the font-family is added to the HTML unquoted.

<span style="font-family:my crazy sans -32432 w10;my crazy sans -386932 w02;sans-serif">Some text here.</span>
This inline style property doesn't work on my browser (latest Chrome).

Digging into the code I found the following code at the end of the tools.js file (inside the parseCssText function):

// Normalize font-family property, ignore quotes and being case insensitive. (#7322)
if ( name == 'font-family' )
    value = value.toLowerCase().replace( /["']/g, '' ).replace( /\s*,\s*/g, ',' );

Noticing the (#7322) remark, I went looking for the ticket - ​

I guess the editor have a problem with handling quoted font-family values internally. But the spec (that the code and the ticket point to) state clearly that on the HTML (and CSS) the value should be quoted.

And again - it's not only contrast with W3 recommendations, it actually doesn't work on my browser.

From ​ :

To avoid mistakes in escaping, it is recommended to quote font family names 
that contain white space, digits, or punctuation characters other than hyphens:

body { font-family: "New Century Schoolbook", serif }

<BODY STYLE="font-family: '21st Century', fantasy">
#10819 [iOS] Hitting return will cause all text below cursor to delete new Bug Normal

Hitting return enough times in a CKEditor field will cause all text below cursor to delete, and will continue to delete text below cursor when pressing return. This is also reproducible using the demo you have online following these steps:

  • Go to on an ipad:

  • Result: Text below initial point is removed and hitting return further deletes any text added.
#10820 [iOS] Calling insertText switches CKEditor into "Read Only" mode new Bug Normal

After using the CKEditor function insertText on an editor that already contains text, the CKEditor seems to go into a "Read Only" type mode.

Text can be read and selected but no typing is allowed. This can happen after insertText is used once, but happens more frequently when it is used several times.

#10954 Add external anchors to link dialog new New Feature Normal

It would be great to be able to add a list of anchors from an external source to the editor. For example the content being edited might exist as a part of a page with tons of anchors, which all should be linkable to within CKEditor, but CKEditor doesn't know of the existance of those anchors so they are not listed in the link dialog.

Something like this for example:

config.extraAnchors = [{id: "Top", name: "Top"}, {name:"Ponies"}];

Additionally, it would be great if that list could be edited when ckeditor is already loaded with config.extraAnchors[2] = {name:"Foo"};.

#11118 Widgets drag handler is marked in selection when it's not visible new Bug Normal

since: 4.3 until major

Atm selection looks buggy when you have widget in it. Browser marks also dragging handler, which is not visible. Changing its styles in that way, so it will gain display: none while widget is not hovered/focused.

  1. open sample with image2 plugin (/samples/plugins/image2/image2.html)
  2. simply make selection which will contain (something more than just) widget (image2 widget i.e.)

Expected result:
Drag handler shouldn't be visible.

Current result:

#11199 [Image2, ACF] Content of figcaption remain once the tag is stripped out in a widget new Bug Normal

Expected: Once figcaption is disallowed, its contents should be removed from the widget. Such widget should be upcasted either to an inline widget or a block widget without caption (to be decided).

#11227 dialog.validate.functions bugs new Bug Normal

The definition of the function returned from dialog.validate.functions suffers from two bugs.

1) When obtaining the "value" from the arguments, the inner function should be referencing its own arguments, not those of the outer function. 2) When calling functions, it should be using "call" and passing "this" so that other validation functions passed as arguments will have the item as "this" as they expect.

#11252 Widget with complex structure allow editing of widgets' editables (if those are divs) new Bug Normal

If widget editables are not direct descendants of widget root element, it is possible to edit/delete elements' editables with CreateDiv context menu options. Deleting results in loss of editable element and its content is moved into editables parent element.

In example below with CreateDiv context menu you could remove content-left and content-right columns. Moving content from those divs to their parent divs (col-xs-12).

Juicy parts of an widget definition:

allowedContent: 'div(!row);'+

// Minimum HTML which is required by this widget to work.
requiredContent: 'div(!row);div(!col-xs-12);div(!content-left);div(!content-right);',

// Define two nested editable areas.
editables: {												
            contentLeft: {
              selector: '.content-left'
            contentRight: {
              selector: '.content-right'
// Define the template of a new widget.
template: '<div class="row">' +

#11389 [iOS] Elements are inserted at wrong position on Ipad new Bug Normal

On Ipad 2 (IOS 6.1.3) and Ipad 3 (IOS 7.0.3) elements are always placed at the very first position of the editor window rather than at the insertion point (current position of the cursor). This happens when using toolbar buttons such as special links and emoticons. On the other hand if you select a piece of text a link will be positioned correctly on top of it and an emoticon will replace it.

#11468 [iOS] Toolbar status doesn't update on iOS new Bug Normal

Using current CKEditor standard editor demo on an iOS device (tested on iPad 2 with iOS 7.0.4):

  1. Position the cursor on the first word in the first paragraph ("Apollo") which is formatted bold.
  2. Observe the 'B' toolbar button is correctly show depressed.
  3. Move the cursor somewhere else in the paragraph that is not bold.
  4. Observe the 'B' toolbar button still shows bold, event though the cursor is not on bold text.

This problem seems to be consistent across all tools on the toolbar; they are not updating when the selection changes.

The problem seems to be that CKEditor is attaching to the DOM selectionchange event on the editable element (around selection.js:387) but according to, the selectionchange event is only valid when attached to the document object (not any element).

I've worked around this problem outside CKEditor using something like this, which fixes the problem:

this.editor.document.on('selectionchange', function () {
  var selection = this.editor.getSelection(),
    path = selection && new CKEDITOR.dom.elementPath(
    );'selectionChange', {
      selection: selection,
      path: path
  }, this);
#12044 iOS: unable to apply (Bold) style when typing quickly after selecting a style new Bug Normal
  1. Press "New Page" button.

  3. Touch the wysiwygarea to set focus.
  4. Start typing.

Result: if you do steps 2-4 quickly, the text is typed correctly, but the selected style is enot applied.

The results become random if there is a short delay between steps 2-4, and after waiting 2 seconds between steps 3-4 the chance of Bold style being applied is almost 100%.

Confirmed on iOS 7.1.1, found while investigating #11405.

#12115 [UX] Drag handler not visable in the High Contrast Mode on Windows new Bug Normal
  1. Switch Windows to the High Contrast Mode (LALT+LSHIFT+PTSCREEN).
  2. Open Image2 sample.

Drag handler is black on the black background so it is not visible. In this mode it is important to make elements as visible as possible.

In fact you do not need High Contrast Mode to meet this issue: in any case when background is black or dark drag handler is not visible. For example if you have dark image with caption and a widget in this caption then drag handler will be hardly visible too.

Tested on IE8 and Windows 7.

#12151 [IE11] The anchor tag text is being replaced when the link is edited new Bug Normal

#12244 Weird issue with coreStyles (regexp?) new Bug Normal

Hi there,

Ive been trying to create a custom plugin for ages before understanding I faced a nasty bug.

I am using CKEditor 4.4.2 (revision 1567b48) in a rails4 project thanks to the ckeditor gem.

To be brief, here is a functional code :

CKEDITOR.config.coreStyles_comment = {  
  element : 'p', 
  attributes: {'class': 'alert alert-info comment'} }

while that one below is buggy. The button is added in the toolbar but disabled.

CKEDITOR.config.coreStyles_comment = {  
  element : 'p', 
  attributes: {'class': 'comment alert alert-info'} }

The only difference is the order in the class attribute.

I made few tests by changing the classes name but I couldn't figure out the problem. this one works :

attributes: {'class': 'a a-b b'} } 

but not this one !!!

attributes: {'class': 'a a-b a'} } 

Here is the whole code :

CKEDITOR.config.coreStyles_comment = {  
  element : 'p', 
  attributes: {'class': 'alert alert-info comment'} }

CKEDITOR.plugins.add( 'comment', {
  icons: 'comment',
  init: function( editor ) {
    var config = editor.config,
        style = new config.coreStyles_comment );

    // Listen to contextual style activation.
    editor.attachStyleStateChange( style, function( state ) {
      !editor.readOnly && editor.getCommand( 'insertComment' ).setState( state );
    } );

    editor.addCommand( 'insertComment', new CKEDITOR.styleCommand( style ) );
    editor.ui.addButton( 'Comment', {
      label: 'Insert Comment',
      command: 'insertComment',
      toolbar: 'pao'

Seems like a dev's nightmare to me don't you think? Good luck with that one ! :-)

#12249 [Android] Textarea with "visibility: hidden" in CKEditor for ASP.NET in place of CKEditor new Bug Normal

As reported on our forum:

I know that ckeditor is not support yet for android, which is fine. I'm happy with it not to display. However, I am using the standard installation for .net, but when I view it on android (4.4.2, glalaxy s4), I see nothing at all. I would have expected to see a simple (non-formatted) textarea?

I've viewed source, and I can see that the textarea box is there but with a style of "visibility: hidden;".

Is this the way its supposed to work? I need the box to be display even without the ckeditor bits.

I can go down the javascript route to check for mobile, then set visibility:visible, but I wanted to check if I was doing something wrong first!

My code is simple...

Register at top:

<%@ Register Assembly="CKEditor.NET" Namespace="CKEditor.NET" TagPrefix="CKEditor" %>

Add in the editor:

<CKEditor:CKEditorControl ID="txtDesc" name="txtDesc" BasePath="/ckeditor/" ClientIDMode="Static" runat="server" ></CKEditor:CKEditorControl>

#12337 [Blink][IE] Restoring first undo might contain unexpected selection. new Bug Normal

This issue has a slightly diffrent outcome in IE / Blink but has the same steps (and problem source I guess).

  1. Open any CKEditor inlineall.html sample.
  2. Hit tab key 4 times (to get focus to the right-hand side editor).
  3. Press single printable char key, eg. a
  4. Press ctrl + z to perform undo

Expected result:
Caret should be collapsed right before first word that's "Lorem"

Current result:
Opera: Caret lands before the first paragraph. So further typing will create new paragraph.

In case of IE caret lands more-less in the middle of text.

additional info:

  1. This is an regression introduced in 4.4.4.
  2. You're not able to reproduce this with mouse.
  3. You're not able to reproduce it when you'll press any printable or navigation key prior TC. So you're able to reproduce issue only in that particular sequence.
  4. Experienced in Opera, Chrome, IE8
