    We currently have implemented RadEditor with the default paragraph tag new line mode.  It is working correctly - when someone hits the Enter key in the editor, it encapsulates the content within paragraph tags.

    However, when we paste content in from the clipboard, RadEditor is generating a <br/> tag for each new line.

    We would like the Editor to have the same paragraph tag new line behavior when pasting.  Is there an easy way to do this, or is writing a custom filter the only way to handle it?

    The NewLineBehavior only instructs what to happen when Enter is hit. Whereas, pasting content, cannot be modified by this functionality. No matter, what option is chosen, P, BR and DIV are always considered as new lines, but a replacement of one tag to another is not a job of the new line behavior.

    As pasting should always lead to an output that is the same as the source from where text is copied, there is no automatic built-in functionality for that. Indeed, the only option is to create a custom content filter (, that achieves the required results.
