#7523 confirmed Bug

IE Can't Drag and Drop text outside of paragraph

Reported by: Michael Camden Owned by:

I'm unable to drag and drop text outside of any paragraph elements in IE.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In the ckeditor demo, clear out all text leaving only a single paragraph.
  2. Select some text from a word document, and drag it to the editor.
  3. Anywhere below the first line the mouse cursor is crossed out, and a drop is disallowed.

Expected result:
Like in other browsers you should be able to drop text anywhere in the editor, regardless of if there is a paragraph tag there or not.

It is impossible to drop text out side the paragraph in all versions of IE.

I couldn't drop anything in Opera 11.01 even inside paragraphs with text.

I've just discovered a fix for this. Basically IE needs to have the body, and html containers height specified before it will allow a drop. I've added this to my editor area css file...

html, body {
	height: 100%;
body {
	height: 95%\9;
	*height: 85%;

Due to the padding around the body, if you set the body height to 100% it will render a scroll bar. The height value changes fairly drastically in IE7 and below.

I have tested this method on IE 9,8,7 and FF 3.6.
