Paste Special Cross Browser Extension
This Paste Special Extension removes the existing Paste Special Functionality from the CME/Experience Manager and replaces it with a cross browser solution. We were finding various issues across most browsers with the OOTB functionality, as enhancements in browser security were restricting access to the local clipboard and impacting the user's ability to use the current Paste special functionality at all.
What we've done is removed the existing paste special and replaced it with two options that appear in the 'Format' Window:
Clicking either one brings up a pop up window where the user just uses their normal keyboard shortcuts to Paste the text into our new window:
In our solution when they click OK we're using CKeditor to parse out/replace the formatting as necessary (since 1. its free, and 2. they already wrote the code/logic and it worked well, we figured why re-invent the wheel) and the text is then placed in the rich text field.
