#8095 closed Bug (fixed)

Chrome pastes insert a meta tag

Reported by: Nick Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version: 3.5.3

Go to any editor using Chrome (I'm in 12.0.742.68 beta)

Copy a word from the editor (select, Ctrl+C) Paste into the editor with Ctrl+V Switch to Source view. The content contains <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="content-type" /> .

Now click the Source button repeatedly. Each time it adds another empty paragraph above the meta tag, generating lots of whitespace. I'm not that bothered about the meta tag but switching to Source view shouldn't generate new paragraphs.

  1. Open replace by class sample
  2. Select word "some" with double-click
  3. Press CRTL+C, CRTL+V
  4. Switch to source and back to WYSIWYG

Result is as described above.

I was able to reproduce it in Chromium on Ubuntu and in Chrome on Mac.
In Chrome under Windows it seems to work fine.

From CKE 3.0 meta tag was inserted.
From CKE 3.1 to 3.5.2 inserted meta tag was splitting sample text in two paragraphs.
From CKE 3.5.3 rev [6629] inserted meta tag has been splitting text in two paragraphs and with every switch source/wysiwyg new empty paragraph is added
