I have an issue with one functionality. In IE8 when I'm trying to paste text from clipboard with use of button "paste" from toolbar (nothing is selected in editor) it just move cursor at the beginning of text area. What is a reason of that?

PS. Paste functionality works fine with use shortcut Ctrl+V.

Hi Bartek,

RadEditor Lite for MOSS is based on RadEditor Classic which does not support Internet Explorer 8. The development of RadEditor Classic was discontinued in favor of the new and much enhanced RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX more than 1.5 years ago. The Ajax based editor is the core of the paid version of RadEditor for MOSS.

The recommended solution is to upgrade to the full featured and paid RadEditor for MOSS (based on RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX) which offers full support for IE8, multiple bug fixes and many new features. The new editor loads multiple times faster than its predecessor as well. The upgrade instructions are available in this help article.

If you are unable to upgrade to the new editor at the moment you can try the following code that should be put under the RadEditor Placeholder declaration:

<script type="text/javascript">

RadEditor.prototype.GetSelectedElement = function()

 {

  if (window.RadControlsNamespace.Browser.IsIE && document.compatMode) this.SetFocus();

 

  return this.GetSelection().GetParentElement();

 };

</script>


You can use the SharePoint Designer to put the code in the page with RadEditor.

Hi Rumen,

   I have tested your solution with appended javascript but it didn't help in my case. Functionality of PASTE button is as it was (it doesn't paste if nothing is selected).

Hello Bartek A,

Try the following javascript code. You can add it at the end of the master page in your MOSS site.
if (typeof(RadEditorCommandList) != "undefined")
{
    var oldPasteCommand = RadEditorCommandList[RadEditorNamespace.RADCOMMAND_PASTE];
    RadEditorCommandList[RadEditorNamespace.RADCOMMAND_PASTE] = function (commandName, editor, oTool)
    {
        if  (window.RadControlsNamespace.Browser.IsIE && document.compatMode)
        editor.SetFocus();
    return oldPasteCommand(commandName, editor, oTool);
    }
}
