This issue is still valid.

Bug 12

Browsers: Chrome, works fine on IE 11.

Dropping Lists from MS Word into editor results into first element being dropped correctly. All rest looks like “<> item2item3item4” Just create list with 4 items, select it with mouse or Ctrl+A and drag it into editor.

If you drop a list from MS Word to CKEditor with native D&D support you also get crappy result.

Bug 19


Bug 21

Browsers: IE10, IE11, works fine on Chorme HTML List selected from sample page (outside of editor) and dropped into empty editor (for simplicity) results in simple text.

NOTE: Bug 12 you have mentioned has same TC and #11376 however issue mentioned in #11376 is only reproducible in IE11.

About droping/pasting content from Word (Bug 12).

On Chorme:

  • drop and paste broken the same way: a lot of if and endif in the dataVaule and the result HTML is < >item2item3,

On Firefox:

  • paste works perfectly fine,
  • drop only looks fine, but in fact it is:
    &bull;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;item1<br />
    &bull;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;item2<br />
    &bull;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;item3<br />

Instead of real list.

On IE11:

  • the same as Firefox.

On IE8:

  • paste is almost fine, but I have no idea where this anchor comes from.
    	<li>item1<a name="_GoBack"></a></li>
  • I was not able to test D&D, because Word Viewer which I use on the machine I have IE8 does not support it.

Also note that lists, headers and formatting is paste correctly in all cases without drop on Firefox/IE11.

Fixed paste from Word on Chrome. Changes in t/11976. Because Bug 21 is still valid it should be moved to the separate ticket.

After a while I realized that because of IE limitations we are able to get external data only as a plain text and this is limitation we already accepted so we are not able to fix bug 21 and we can close this ticket after closing bug 12.

PFW tests fail on FF. It's too late in 4.5.0 beta for a change that once surprised us, so I'm changing the milestone to 4.5.0.

Regexp was too generic. Fixed on the same branch.

And now there was a bug in the regexp. I fixed it and... I cannot paste list on Firefox anymore.

I checked that on Firefox we also get different "HTML" from clipboard than from pastebin. Those pseudo comments are also there, but they look differently. So there are two issues at the same time:

  1. We do not clean these comments appropriately because I can see them later in the paste's dataValue.
  2. An error is thrown.

I attached file which I tests. I would also attach HTML, but someone decided that on Firefox's console only exceprts from console.logs are visible and I cannot get the full HTML ;/.

I pushed branch :t/11976 with one more commit. On FF we get the same HTML as on Chrome, but for some reasons this HTML was breaking the filter. Simple change in it prevents the error and the result is correct.

Resolution: fixed
Status: reviewclosed

Ok, so pasting in Chrome and Firefox works fine, dropping in Chrome too, so I believe it is good moment to close this tickets and move remaining problems to separate tickets: #13357, #13356, #13358.

Closed with git:2a4748a. Finally.
