  • Resolved finexcz


    Dear support,

    We are trying to implement free version of your plugin to our site. So far its working well, but I have a problem that I need to solve. I wonder if the paid version helps with it. If it does, we can buy it, but we don’t want to do so only to check if it helps.

    The problem is – when you copy text with elements such as tables and so on from microsoft office word into the editor, the text breaks. The tables dont work, images don’t upload and there are a lot of elements put there that shouldnt be there.

    Is there any way to support copying from Microsoft Word or Google Docs?? Many of our writers do it this way.

    Dear Aleksan, unfortunately, it doesn’t work in there either. Is it maybe a feature that will be added, or not at all and I should look for a different plugin?

    Dear Aleksan, sorry it took me so long. Anyway here are the required.

    What I am trying to copy from Microsoft Word (simple cmd+C, cmd+V):

    Right now, it copies in the form of an image. Not text with the elements (bold, uderline, table,..) but it looks like a screenshot..

    My question is, is it hard (or possible at all) to add support for this? If I copy something from word, it goes in the editor.. Not as an image, but as the elements themselves – text, image, table,….

    Thank you so much!

    Also, when my coworker tried inserting it from word into the editor on a Windows PC (I have a Mac OS) he got this result:
    – Image didnt insert, table didnt insert

    This is the code the editor makes out of it:
    {"time":1618514759643,"blocks":[{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"This is a text. A\nsample text with some <b>bold</b> and underlined words in it. Also, <a>this</a> is a link going to some page."}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"Below, you will\nfind an image"}},{"type":"image","data":{"file":{"url":[]},"caption":"","withBorder":false,"stretched":false,"withBackground":false}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"Yes the image is\nabove <b>THIS</b> text. But below it, I have included a <i>table</i> too!"}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"One"}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"Two"}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"A"}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"B"}},{"type":"paragraph","data":{"text":"Do you like this?"}}],"version":"2.19.0"}

    Also, here is the file we were trying to copy and paste
