I need to copy paste some content in my summernote editor .But when I paste, it takes the style of the page from where I have copied it.I need to paste it as plain text. Is there any solution?

Use the onPaste Callback

Use the onPaste option to define a callback that will strip the tags and manually insert the text.

$editor.summernote({
    onPaste: function (e) {
        var bufferText = ((e.originalEvent || e).clipboardData || window.clipboardData).getData('Text');
        e.preventDefault();
        document.execCommand('insertText', false, bufferText);
    }
});

Solve Firefox Problems:

You may still have problems with Firefox. If so, wrap document.execCommand in a timer function to delay its execution a tiny bit:

setTimeout(function(){
    document.execCommand( 'insertText', false, bufferText );
}, 10);
Update for v0.7.0+

Position of callbacks in options is changed after v0.7.0After v0.7.0, every callbacks should be wrapped by callbacks object. (source)

This means that the original code should be written as

$editor.summernote({
    callbacks: {
        onPaste: function (e) {
            var bufferText = ((e.originalEvent || e).clipboardData || window.clipboardData).getData('Text');
            e.preventDefault();
            document.execCommand('insertText', false, bufferText);
        }
    }
});

After v0.7.0, every callbacks should be wrapped by callbacks object. http://summernote.org/deep-dive/#callbacks

So if you are using summernote from v0.7.0 or above, jcuenod's answer could now be rewritten as:

$('.summernote').summernote({
    callbacks: {
        onPaste: function (e) {
            var bufferText = ((e.originalEvent || e).clipboardData || window.clipboardData).getData('Text');

            e.preventDefault();

            // Firefox fix
            setTimeout(function () {
                document.execCommand('insertText', false, bufferText);
            }, 10);
        }
    }
});

Onpaste event to clear formatting · Issue #303 · summernote , I wanna remove all styles when someone copy pastes a text to the editor. Or is there an other (easyer) way to clear formatting when someone someNote.​code('').html(cleaned); //this sets the displayed content editor to the cleaned pasted  Can this be expanded to support text and images? I know the image can be pasted with onImageUpload but why not handle both in the paste event. Sign up for free to join this conversation on GitHub .

The onPaste-callback works great but I was having problems with the different handling of linebreaks in different browsers. So I came up with the following solution, which uses html-linebreaks:


    $(".htmleditor").summernote({
      callbacks: {
        // callback for pasting text only (no formatting)
        onPaste: function (e) {
          var bufferText = ((e.originalEvent || e).clipboardData || window.clipboardData).getData('Text');
          e.preventDefault();
          bufferText = bufferText.replace(/\r?\n/g, '<br>');
          document.execCommand('insertHtml', false, bufferText);
        }
      }
    });

Managed to make a horrible hack work for IE11. This will sadly also ask for a paste permission from the user as well. If someone figures out a better suggestion I'm all ears.

var trap = false;
$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#summernote').summernote({
        callbacks: {
            onPaste: function (e) {
                if (document.queryCommandSupported("insertText")) {
                    var text = $(e.currentTarget).html();
                    var bufferText = ((e.originalEvent || e).clipboardData || window.clipboardData).getData('Text');

                    setTimeout(function () {
                        document.execCommand('insertText', false, bufferText);
                    }, 10);
                    e.preventDefault();
                } else { //IE
                    var text = window.clipboardData.getData("text")
                    if (trap) {
                        trap = false;
                    } else {
                        trap = true;
                        setTimeout(function () {
                            document.execCommand('paste', false, text);
                        }, 10);
                        e.preventDefault();
                    }
                }

            }

Comments
  • I tried the same.But onpaste event doesn't trigger.
  • Any luck with the update? I've added a functional demo (though it's missing some 3rd party thing).
  • Yes, its working fine!!Problem was with the summernote.min.js file I guess.I was using the previous version of it.When I used the file given in the demo, the issue got fixed!!
  • FOLLOWUP: ok almost... first paragraph (on every string of text i try) gets a <span> tag. After that it is all normal. @jcuenod
  • If you are on version 6.0 to 6.4 then you need onpaste instead of onPaste. version 6.5 fixes this.
  • as of tested today, works on firefox and safari. Works on Chrome too but chrome e.preventDefault() doesn't work, it still paste the content in if the content is a image even when bufferText.length == 0.
  • This seems to do exactly what i needed, could u please give me a tip on how to use it or where to implement the above code in Django? Link to question
