Description

Hi,

There appears to be a bug affecting IE8 in CKEditor where copying and pasting (via CTRL+C, CTRL+V) changes the HTML and wraps the hyperlink text in font tags. I have been able to reproduce it 100% on http://ckeditor.com/demo. I was able to reproduce with IE8 versions in both WinXP 32-bit and Win7 32-bit.

Before copy HTML:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Armstrong" title="Neil Armstrong">Neil Armstrong</a>

After paste HTML:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Armstrong" title="Neil Armstrong"><font color="#0000ff">Neil Armstrong</font></a>

It seems to affect IE8 only. I've tried to reproduce in IE9, Firefox and Chrome and there was no issue with those browsers.

Your issue look very similar to #6372 however I was not able to reproduce it.

Please provide exact steps or screen cast of the problem as simple copy paste seems to work without problems.

Thanks for the prompt response!

I'm at home now and I cannot reproduce it either when using IE8 on Win7 64-bit. I'll have to see what's different about the IE configurations at work.

I was able to reproduce it on my home configuration by partially copying a link and then pasting.

Let me know if you can reproduce it via this method.

Summary: Copy/paste of hyperlinks with IE8 creates font tagsCopy/paste of hyperlinks with IE creates font tags
Version: 4.0.13.1

Problem can be reproduced in all versions of IE from CKEditor 3.1.

There are two way to reproduce this:

  • using ctrl+c/ctrl+v (later reffered as keys)
  • using IE native copy/paste from menu or toolbar (later reffered as buttons). Of course clipboard access is required here.

Results:

  • IE7 - Using keys you can only reproduce it by copy/paste part of link e.g. Amstong from Neil_Amstong. Using buttons and selecting part of link will result in plain text being pasted. Copy/Paste with key or buttons on whole link works as expected.
  • IE8 - Using keys and buttons you can only reproduce it by copy/paste part of link e.g. Amstong from Neil_Amstong.
  • IE9 - Using keys and buttons you can reproduce it by copy/paste whole or part of link
  • IE10 - Using keys and buttons you can only reproduce it by copy/paste part of link e.g. Amstong from Neil_Amstong.
  • IE11 - Using keys and buttons you can reproduce it by copy/paste part or whole

IE8 got the same result as IE10

Starting from CKEditor 4.1 problem can be reproduced when ACF is disabled.
