Description (last modified by martinkou) (diff)

The problem reported in bug #1214941 "copying and pasting from word doesn't force it as plain text, even though I have that option turned on"


was only patched for CTRL+V paste method.

The problem still happens if you paste using "Edit menu --> Paste", if you paste dragging from another window or if you paste using COMMAND+V (in Mac) or MAYS+INS (in Linux).

Moved from SF:

The "Edit menu" and dragging ways issues will be really hard to fix. Let's investigate it better.

I can confirm this bug partially.

Dragging text from enables "Paste as Plain Text" window. CTRL+V as said above also enables the window.

Only pasting using Edit Menu+Paste doesn't force paste as plain text.

I'm having the same problem as well. Depending on how you do it, some paste operations bypass the ForcePasteAsText config. Firefox on Windows-- Menu: Edit > Paste Firefox on Mac-- Menu Paste and Command + V

I know this will be difficult to fix but consistent behavior for things like pasting is very important for most applications built with FCK.

I can confirm this issue as well. Past from FF Edit Menu does not strip out the formatted text even though FCKConfig.ForcePasteAsPlainText = true in my config.

comment:6 Changed 6 years ago by bitsize

I can also now confirm that right click paste also does not strip out formatted text even though FCKConfig.ForcePasteAsPlainText = true in my config.

This is a rather large issue.

Drag/Drop and CTRL V seem to show the add text window every time, but menu Edit | Paste and right click Paste puts all formatting into the textarea including links.

For some sites this could be a security risk.

You could fix this issue in Firefox 3+ using the new event onpaste. See

Still reproducible in v3 (on at least latest FF), but fixed in v4.

Still reproducible in v3 (on at least latest FF), but fixed in v4.

  1. set config.forcePasteAsPlainText = true;
  2. Open replacebycode sample
  3. Select text above editor - editing area, provided by the Wysiwygarea plugin.
  4. Drag and drop it

Word Wysiwygarea is still bold.

  • Status changed from confirmed to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I'm closing this ticket. Currently, only one issue left and this is lack of handling for drag&drop pasting. Unfortunately this method doesn't fire native paste events or our pastebin can't grab this content. This needs some testing.

Anyway - different issue. See #9413.
