Pasted MS Word Styles in the Editor Are Not Retained


Product Progress® Kendo UI® Editor for jQuery
Operating System Windows 10 64bit


The pasted MS Word styles in the jQuery Editor are not retained.


By design, the Editor strives to output a clean and XHTML-compatible markup. That is why, the widget cleans up invalid styles set by Microsoft Word and removes the most presentational styles. Such styles include the colors applied by the current theme and the default MS Word font and size.


Ideally, the output of the Editor has to be styled via a stylesheet provided through the stylesheets configuration option. It allows for the whole pasted content to be consistently styled across your site.

If wrong pasting removes semantics or actual content along with the styles:

  1. Submit a bug report.
  2. Attach an MS Word document that reproduces the issue.
