Opera: paste from right-click menu does nothing

Reported by: mike1 Owned by:

Component: Core : Pasting Version: 3.5
Keywords: Opera Cc:


If I create CKEditor instance with empty initial text and disabled context menu, copy some text to clipboard, paste it through right-click Opera standard menu, nothing happens. It works only on second or third time.

Opera version is 11.50 english.

My config is <script type="text/javascript">

CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor_office2003',


skin : 'office2003', removePlugins : 'contextmenu'

Context native menu for pasting has been visible in Opera form CKEditor 3.5.

I didn't get the error you were talking about but something similar.
If you put mouse cursor below editor cursor (the one blinking in content area) than no pasting will take place.
If you put mouse cursor in the same line/height as editor cursor (the one blinking in content area) than pasting takes place.

@mike1 is this what you are getting?

@mike1 any updates?

Yes, this is the native Opera context menu (right-click->Paste).

In my case incorrect behaviour (no pasting) usually takes place in case of empty content area. I can paste normally if the content area is not empty (even one space resolves the problem) and if the mouse cursor is on the same line with the editor cursor. And, yes, the effect depends on the mouse cursor position. BTW, another Opera paste option (Opera button->Page->Paste) works normally even on empty editor window.

I also noticed that in Firefox right-clicking on editor area raises different context menus depending on the point where mouse pointer is: either frame menu with no paste option at all or normal cut/copy/paste menu. Maybe Opera just shows incorrect context menu when no paste option is available and so it does not work?

I must say that it didn't matter for me whether there was a content in editor or not. If the mouse cursor was in the same line as editor cursor the pasting took place otherwise not.

This issue worked till CKEditor version 3.5.

This issue is in fact a duplicate of #7979.

Currently the only workaround is setting CSS rule min-height for body so that it covers visible content area.
