CKEDITOR.replace( 'area',{
 autoParagraph : false,

Reproducible from CKEditor 3.6.3 rev. [7383]

Just insert one or both of the below:

config.autoParagraph = false;
config.enterMode = CKEDITOR.ENTER_BR;

I have created a test program at:

that illustrates the problem.

I have set: config.enterMode = CKEDITOR.ENTER_P;

and the problem remains

@westcoastbc I have written

one or both of the below

what means that only one of those options can cause this problem.

Yes you have set config.enterMode = CKEDITOR.ENTER_P; but you have also set CKEDITOR.config.autoParagraph = false; which causes the problem.

Replying to garry.yao: How do I implement the above patch? I have added the code in 8921.patch to _source\plugins\clipboard\plugin.js but the problem remains.

And what CKEditor script are you using on your page ckeditor.js or ckeditor_source.js? Changes in _source will be only visible when using ckeditor_source.js but this is good only for development. In release code ckeditor.js should be use.

Proper flow to apply the patch is to get SVN version of CKEditor, apply patch build new release. Please see comment from and doc file from
