    Pasting from Word

    Recently purchased the editor and only have one issue:


    I was able to recreate on the demo.

    When pasting form word, paragraphs are pasted with <p>  tags. Is there a way to change this to <div> instead?

    Hi astearns,


    You can catch the paste command, then replace the code to match your own requirement by API "RichTextEditor_OnPasteFilter".


    This event is raised before the data is pasted into RichTextEditor. It allows you intercept the paste function and filter the content being pasted. 


    <script type='text/javascript'>
    function RichTextEditor_OnPasteFilter(editor,info)
    	var html=info.Arguments[0];
    	var cmd=info.Arguments[1];
    	info.ReturnValue="<br/>You fire "+cmd+" to paste {<hr/>"+html+"<hr/>}.";

    Hi Ken,


    thanks for the reply that accomplished what I wanted. Posting my solution here in case it is useful to anyone else:


    <script type='text/javascript'>
        function RichTextEditor_OnPasteFilter(editor, info) {
            var html = info.Arguments[0];
            var cmd = info.Arguments[1];
            html = html.replace(/<p>/g,"<div>");
            html = html.replace(/<\/p>/g,"</div>");
            info.ReturnValue = html;

    Out of curiosity, why isn't there a setting in config.js for this? It's not hard to change now that I know how but seems like it would be easier with a setting. 


    Thanks again!
