#40429 new defect (bug)

Right Click for Paste not allowed - use CTRL+V

Reported by: sdpate48 Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: high
Severity: normal Version:
Component: TinyMCE Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: accessibility Cc:


The visual editor is forcing the user to use CTRL+V/CMD+V for shortcuts to paste contents.

While this is very Mac like it's very unfriendly to people with disabilities who have RSS, carpal tunnel, weak hands wrists arms or other issues moving their hands easily from a mouse to the keyboard and back again.

It also does not comply with accessibility guidelines https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms971323.aspx

I've reproduced this scenario in Edge/Windows 10. Doesn't happen in other browsers in Windows 10; so this appears to be an Edge specific issue.

Changing status on this to high; I think this is a major issue, but we'll have to investigate what Edge is doing differently here.

Sorry to add another issue - Ctrl V is creating screen garbage in Visual Mode

Hi All,

I have checked it in detail and found that clipboardContent["text/html"] = getPasteBinHtml(); code is not getting proper content and here we also no need to add the data for ie becuase it's already get the data in insertClipboardContent() funcation. I have attached patch for your review please check it.
