#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

#9300 Move keystroke handlers pending garry.yao Bug Normal

Currently we hooked all keystroke handles, inside of editable.js, it has the following cons:

  • Even if native behavior canceled by keydown listener, is still firing editor#key event, which should not happen.
  • Bad to continue enlarging editable.js code lines

core/keystrokehandler.js would be a proper new home for them.

#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?

#12270 iFrame & Javascript videos don't play in IE pending Bug Normal

Can't get streaming videos to play in IE (works in other browsers). I added streaming videos to the CKEditor (using the "Source" function). I did an iFrame to the URL of the video and added the video's Javascript code for another video. The videos are hosted by Brightcove.

The videos play in Chrome and Safari, but don't appear in Internet Explorer 9 (haven't tried other versions of IE). Is there any configuration/setting I can change in the CKEditor to get videos to play in IE? Or alternatively any change I can make to my Javascript code or iFrame code to get the videos to play?


#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

#12342 CKEditor in IE 11 Enterprise Mode with Compatibility Mode not working pending Bug Normal

#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 .

#12996 SCAYT Affecting Dialog Double Click pending Bug Normal

#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.

#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.

#13315 CKEditor object in debug mode doesn't load correctly. pending Bug Normal

Using the CKEditor in debug mode ( ?x-ckeditor-debug=true ) , when the CKEditor loads, i'm getting errors in the console, regarding some methods missing(e.g. the CKEDITOR.on method).

I used to this simple html page to load the editor :

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head>

<title>Source defect CKEditor Sample</title> <meta charset="utf-8"> <script src="../ckeditor.js"></script>

</head> <body>


<label for="editor1">

Editor 1:</label>

<textarea cols="80" id="editor1" name="editor1" rows="10">

&lt;p&gt;This is some &lt;strong&gt;sample text&lt;/strong&gt;. You are using &lt;a href=""&gt;CKEditor&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;

</textarea> <script>

CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor1' );

#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

#13402 Application Error Disclosure pending Bug Normal

Details of some of our error messages are being exposed publically which could potentially allow hackers to have insight into the location of flies on our site. Has this bug been identified? (I could not find anything on the search). It seems to be most common in Chrome. Also, we are not on the most current version of CKEditor. Would upgrading resolve this issue?

#13425 Autoembed: breaking the link before embed loads pending Bug Normal

When you paste autoembedable link into the editor and break it (using enter key) before the embed content loads, broken part is not removed.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In empty editor, paste
  2. Before the link is converted, press left key and enter key.
  3. Wait for embed content to load.

Expected result: The editor contains only embeded content.
Result: The editor contains embeded content and leftovers from the link.

#13450 CKEditor leaving stray markup in style sheet pending Bug Normal

Today I was alerted to some errors from our CSS inliner. On inspecting it, I found that CKEditor had inserted a style tag in the middle of a style sheet, so it ended up like this:

    table.columns .right-text-pad {
      padding-right: 10px;
    <style data-cke-temp="1">html{cursor:text;*cursor:auto}
<style data-cke-temp="1">html{cursor:text;*cursor:auto}

It was inserted right at the bottom of the style tag that was there already, but still inside it. It's nothing to do with our inliner as I've since found it in other content that doesn't use it.

As you can see, it looks like it has happened more than once. I'm getting the the contents of the editor using cke.getData(), saving it via XHR, which gives me a filtered version back, and so I reinject it into the editor with cke.setData(). For this to happen, it must mean that getData is including this temporary markup.

Very occasionally I've seen another similar problem where every image in the content (which usually gets the little drag cross icon attached top left on rollover) gets the drag icon image permanently attached.

I think it's similar in that it's temporary markup injected by ckeditor failing to be cleaned up in the final output, which should be free of such things.

Unfortunately I can't reproduce this reliably so can't give you a test case at present, but I assume that this is done in some consistent way.

#13479 CKEditor to doesn't work in Firefox 38.0.5 pending Bug Normal

As skin i picked "Flat".

  1. Finalize and download:

Editors language is English and German.

Then i downloaded first the Optimezed version and put it in my web projekt. I builded everything and reloaded and got this error:

"Error Parsing /xhtml/include/vdbw/edit.xhtml: Error Traced[line: 135] The element type "textarea" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</textarea>"."

After i saw this, i commented the scipt block out where CKEDITOR.replace('mytextareaId') is called and typed in my Firebug Console CKEDITOR.replace('mytextareaId'). I got

TypeError: c[a] is undefined
a);var c=this,d=function(){c[a].dir=c.rtl[a]?"rtl":"ltr";b{a,c[a])};this[a]?d()...

So i thought i try the Source code, to see and fix the bug(if its my fault) or to better report. If i tried it with the Source code firebug told me CKEDITOR.replace is not a function.

#13813 When calling CKEDITOR.replace with two extra Plugins twice, the editor does not load on the second time pending Bug Normal

I am trying to add two extra plugins. Every time I open the editor, I call CKEDITOR.replace. It works fine first time I open the editor, however if I close it and reopen it again (i.e. call CKEDITOR.replace again), the editor never loads. Also, I noticed that if I leave a single plugin, the problem disappears.

I have took a look into the source code and I found a mistake in the CKEDITOR.scriptLoader.load method.

var scriptCount = scriptUrl.length;

// ...

for (var i = 0; i < scriptCount; i++) {
    loadScript( scriptUrl[ i ] );

// ...

var checkLoaded = function( url, success ) {
    ( success ? completed : failed ).push( url );
    if ( --scriptCount <= 0 ) {
	showBusy && CKEDITOR.document.getDocumentElement().removeStyle( 'cursor' );
	doCallback( success );

As you can see, there is a loop, where loadScript is called for each scriptURL (a number of scriptURLs equals to scriptCount). However it turns out that loadScript decreases the scriptCount. So if scriptCount = 2, the second scriptURL does not have a chance to be processed, because the loop is ended after the first iteration!

I have resolved this problem by replacing scriptCount to scriptUrl.length in the loop:

for (var i = 0; i < scriptUrl.length; i++) {
    loadScript( scriptUrl[ i ] );

You may want to apply this fix.

#13866 Content Loses Formatting When Copied From Citrix Session into Local CKEditor Instance pending Bug Normal

Content that is pasted from a Citrix-delivered application (Word, Outlook, etc.) loses formatting when pasted into a non-Citrix delivered browser. Examples of lost formatting are bold, valid bullets (created with Word bullet tool vs. "fake" typed bullets) that should be transformed into <ol> and <ul></li> structures are instead changed to HTML entities (&bull; with trailing &nbsp;).

Pasting into IE 11 from Citrix to local does retain bullet formatting, but loses bold formatting, and extra <p> tags are injected where there should be none.

Screenshots of each condition/result and source are provided. Primary platform is Windows 7, Citrix is also on Windows Server 2008 R2.

#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 )
		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>' +

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

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.

#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

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

#6931 Form creation behaviour new Bug Normal

#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:

		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.

#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;}

#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.
