#2550 closed Bug (fixed)

Bold content pasted from Outlook not converted to <strong>

Since version 2.6, the editor generates <strong> tags rather than <b>'s. However, the formatting of pasted content is inconsistent with this. As a consequence, it is not possible to un-bold the content.

Versions: 2.6.2 / 2.6.3 OS: Windows XP Browser: IE6

Steps to reproduce:

In an Outlook (2003) email, format some text as bold. Copy and paste it into the FCK editor. The formatting appears to be preserved. Select the bold text. Note that the "B" toolbar button is highlighted. Click the toolbar button to 'un-bold' the text. Note that the text remains bold.

Use the "Source" toolbar button to examine the content. Note that the bolding is applied with <b> tags:

<p>Plain <b>Bold</b> Plain</p>

Using the 'Paste from Word' option does not solve the problem. So the only option is to 'Paste as Text', and then re-format the content.

Interestingly, the same issue does not apply to italic formatting (within <i> tags). Although it is pasted into the editor as <i>'s, rather than <em>'s, the "I" toolbar button can be used to convert it back to non-italic text.

I confirm. Paste

<p>Plain <b>bold</b> Plain</p>

in source mode, go to WYSIWIG. There are 3 ways to un-bold this text:

  • Double click "bold", click Bold button 2 times. (FF3)
  • Insert cursor in "bold" and click Bold-button. (FF3, IE6)
  • Double click "bold", click Bold button. (IE7)
