#7371 closed Bug (fixed)

Setting CKEDITOR.config.pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles to false throws an exception when pasting from word

Reported by: Michael Camden Owned by:

Keywords: HasPatch Cc: satya_minnekanti@…


TypeError: Cannot call method 'match' of null

File: pastefromword/filters/default.js
Ln 1121:
Parent Method: CKEDITOR.cleanWord calling dataProcessor.toHtml

I've traced the error to the following call stack:
Ln 897: calling stylesFilter with an array, which later calls styleMigrateFilter
Ln 546: styleMigrateFilter attempts to create a CKEDITOR.htmlParser.element object with the null parameter. Since the element doesn't have a tagName, .match is called on null (core/htmlparser/element.js ln: 40) which throws an exception.

Tested on Firefox 3, and Chrome.

I've attached the example document that I was using to test pasting.

Suggested fix:

File: pastefromword/filters/default.js
Ln 552:
Replace, var styleElement = new CKEDITOR.htmlParser.element( null ),
With, var styleElement = new CKEDITOR.htmlParser.element( 'span' ),

Status: newconfirmed

Confirmed in 3.5.2, to reproduce this issue make sure to set in config.js

config.pasteFromWordRemoveFontStyles = false;

and comment out the try/catch statement around line 1127 in pastefromword/filters/default.js, because otherwise an alert message is displayed.

@mrfr0g - are you still able to reproduce this issue using the Nightly Build?
