Currently paste buttons in CKEditor don't work as expected due to a security restriction in browsers. When pressing the button, an alert is shown asking for using a shortcut (CTRL+V) instead.
Steps to reproduce it:
- Copy an extract from a word document on the clipboard
- In admin central create a basic page and add a text and image component within
- When filling the component's dialog, press paste buttons
In Magnolia 6.0/6.2 you will see the message after pressing several times the button as it appears behind the dialog: (update: still the same also in M6.1.4 and M6.2.22)
In Magnolia 5.7 and earlier you will see the following:
Those buttons shouldn't appear anymore.
Additionally, this feature has been added again through a context menu in CKEditor 5 v11.2.0 (no paste buttons anymore). It might be interesting to update CKEditor to version 5 so that editors could make use of both the shortcut and the right-click menu to paste the content.
Also if you go to the paste from word demo area for the ckeditor you get the same problem.
Paste buttons won't appear by simply replacing a line in our configuration file: 5
