#14660 closed Bug (fixed)

Pasting text from MS Word "breaks" styling in some cases

Reported by: flowfacthag Owned by: m.lewandowski
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 4.6.0
Component: Plugin : Paste from Word Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Steps to reproduce

  1. Open new Word document
  2. Write some text
  3. Set font size to 36
  4. Mark text with yellow marker tool
  5. copy & paste this text into ckeditor (prerequirement: config.pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles & config.pasteFromWordRemoveStyles are set to FALSE)
  6. see that yellow marking is only half the height of the text
  7. happens because the plugin puts background-color and font-size not in the same but cascaded <SPAN> tags. So outer span doesn't now anything about the inner.
  8. Dirty workaround is to comment out the lines 950-952 in ckeditor\plugins\pastefromword\filter\default.js

Expected result

yellow background is as height as the text

<span style="background: yellow; font-size: 36pt">myTXT</span>

Actual result

yellow background is only half the height of its text

<span style="background: yellow;"><span style="font-size: 36pt">myTXT</span></span>
