Following the advice above and in other threads, I cannot seem to get Paste From Word functionality working in Umbraco 7.
I have enabled the new property on the RTE datatype, and the code is as follows:
<command> <umbracoAlias>mcePasteAsWord</umbracoAlias> <icon>images/editor/paste.gif</icon> <tinyMceCommand value="" userInterface="true" frontendCommand="pasteword">pasteword</tinyMceCommand> <priority>79</priority></command>
The button does not appear on the UI. However if I change the frontendCommand to "pastetext" it works fine.
What browser are you using? And what exact version of Umbraco 7 are you using? Unfortunately it's a common issue but it should actually work in v7 as it's based on TinyMce 4 where support has been improved. But I guess it can depend on the browser being used still.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Using Chrome Version 41.0.2272.43 beta-m (64-bit). And Umbraco 7.2.1. I've hard cleared chrome cache as advised in previous threads.
Also tested in IE 11 with no luck.
Aaah, sorry - Think I misunderstood you there perhaps - The issue is that you don't see the button at all?
Did you also recycle the app pool after making the change? When editing the files in the /config/ folder you always need to do this in order for changes to take effect.
Hope this helps.
Exactly, the button doesn't show. I have tried recycling the app pool etc as you have mentioned.
However the button DOES show if I change the frontendCommand to pastetext rather than pasteword (everything else exactly the same).
Aaah, I think it's because the pasteword option is no longer available in tinymce from v 4 as 0100 also writes in the post you're referring too. The list of available TinyMce plugins does only show a "paste" option http://www.tinymce.com/wiki.php/Plugins and it seems that it's the one that should be used according to the information on http://www.tinymce.com/wiki.php/Plugins
So instead of trying to initialize "pasteword" you should go with pastetext as it's shown in the example from the post you're referring.
So that would be like this
<tinyMceCommand value="" userInterface="true" frontendCommand="pastetext">pastetext</tinyMceCommand>
You should be able to paste from word using this as I understand what it says on the page on tinymce.
Hope this clears things up.
Thanks for sharing all, just stumbling on this and it helped me out greatly.
In 7.3.0, the paste plugin seems to be doing the trick for me:
<tinyMceCommand value="" userInterface="true" frontendCommand="paste">paste</tinyMceCommand>
I'm having trouble getting this button to work with Umbraco 7.4.1
The button appears but nothing is pasted from my clipboard.
On second thought, I'm not even sure this paste button is needed anymore. In the past (Umbraco < 7.2.8), the formatting when pasting text from Word was all over the place. After upgrading to 7.4.1, copying from Word seems to work perfectly with the standard copy/paste shortcuts. Does anyone know what extra functionality this button might add?
Running Umbraco 7.5.9 I can confirm that just normal pasting from Word works well, all the formatting clutter is removed. However, I have a problem with nordic characters, they disappear when pasting into tinyMce. But if I go via notepad (or textedit on Mac) it works fine. Does any one have any experience with this?
Im using 7.7.2 and I couldnt see how to Paste from Word. I was expecting a pop-up to appear when i click on the icon in the tool bar but nothing happens. Do you know what the Config file needs to look like?
There is a Power Paste in V4 of Tiny MCE - but 7.7.2 uses V3 of Timy MCE.
I'm using versions > 7.7.7 and can't get rid of these <style> attributes. I tried everything listed above and in the other sources listed as links here. But there is obviously something I missed. How exactly do I have to alter an out-of-the-box tinyMceConfig.config file to paste from word without getting the styles?
Currently a paste from word looks like that:
<p style="margin: 0px 0px 10.66px;"><span style="margin: 0px;">Absatz 1 Test Test.</span></p>
So, the style attributes and span tags shouldn't appear.
Does anybody have any insights?
