    I have an issue pasting data from Word or Excel inside the radEditor control when using IE8.
    I was able to reproduce the issue on the demo page: ​

    I erased the contents of the radeditor (ctrl-A Del), while staying in design view.
    Paste a chunk of Excel or tabular Word data inside the radEditor (still in design view).
    Problem 1: At first, I thought it didn't paste any data, but it seems the data is pasted after a lot of top whitespace, so you have to scroll down to see it.
    Problem 2: Switch to HTML view (not noticing any HTML tags to justify the whitespace), and back to design view. Now the data is placed at the top of the editor, but it seems the cells of the original tabular data are expanded.

    My browser is IE8.0 on Windows XP (but same issue happens on Windows 7 according to our client )

    Hi Tim,

    This issue with the table pasting is indeed reproducible with the 2014 Q1 version. I am glad to inform you that for the upcoming release the paste functionality will be greatly improved and this matter should be resolved. I suggest you trying again the same scenario after upgrading with the 2014 Q1 SP1 release.

    The problem with the expanding cells is not reproducible on my end and I will need more information about the exact steps leading to this issue. Additionally, it would be helpful if you could check the exact mode under which you are testing (You can check this via the dev toolbar).
