#11430 closed Bug (invalid)

Pasting text using ctrl-v or the paste button does not work in IE11

Reported by: Fred Read Owned by:

Component: General Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When running IE11 on Windows 7 I am not able to past text into a CKEditor window at all. I saw other bugs mentioning this and they were closed. This problem still appears to be happening.

Possibly related observations:

  • When I run the IE11 debugger it stops on an uncaught exception (NotSupportedError).
  • CKEDITOR.env.gecko returns true
  • returns false
  • CKEDITOR.env.version returns 110000
  • CKEDITOR.env.cssClass returns "cke_browser_gecko"

People are screaming at me about this, so if it can be fixed, that would be just super! :-)

It is very strange that you IE11 is recognised as Gecko. Are you sure you're using CKEditor 4.3.1? We fixed IE11 recognition in 4.3 and have not other reports that it doesn't work.

Could you check in JS console what: navigator.userAgent returns?

It returns "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E; rv:11.0) like Gecko"

In case it's relevant... I am also using 4.3.1's jQuery adapter. Here are the URLs of my included JS (copied from the browser's network tab in the developer tools):

It's not a CKEditor 4.3.1 definitely. In your ckeditor.js I found:


Which we stopped using in CKEditor 4.3 (see git:f01e43b7).

Oh... Well, I downloaded it from your site yesterday in a zip bundle called How do I ACTUALLY get 4.3.1?

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by Fred Read

I will re-try extracting and applying the bundle in case I did something stupid like unzip the new package and then use the old one :-)

It would appear that I am an idiot! :-)

Somehow I managed to download and extract the NEW software, yet somehow rename the old version in my work directory to 4.3.1. Thank you very much for your help in sorting this out!
