#16957 closed Bug (fixed)

[PFW] Styles.inliner.inline does not take selectors specificity into account and duplicates rules.

Reported by: kkrzton Owned by: kkrzton
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 4.7.0
Component: General Version:
Keywords: PFW Cc:


Steps to reproduce

Having a html in dataTransfer object like

  td { color:black; }
  .xl65 { color:#C00000; }

<td class="xl65"> ... </td>

and using CKEDITOR.plugins.pastefromword.styles.inliner.inline produces a styles object like

  .xl65: { color: '#C00000' },
  td: { color: 'black'  }

Those styles are the applied to a specific element. This means the colors are applied in the incorrect order (first, color from .xl65 class, then from td - which overrides the first one). The CSS order specificity should be keep in mind here. Also the inliner does not check if same style is already defined so that the resulted styles will have two color rules. It wille result in style like color:#C00000;color:black; (it is not a big issue unless the order is correct, however it might be also improved).


Two improvements could be applied here:

  • Use the proper order for CSS selectors (now there is only problem with single element and single class selectors order - copying content from Excel does not seems to create more complex selectors).
  • If the rule already exists, overwrite it.

Moving to 4.7.1. If it can be fixed with very little efforts it's still fine to do it in 4.7.0, but it's not a crucial ticket.
