CKEditor 4.11.3 released

CKEditor 4 Release

We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.11.3. This is a minor release that brings some further improvements to the emoji feature. It also fixes a handful of bugs with Copy Formatting and widgets’ nested editables, or Backspace behavior in nested lists. Read on for more!

# Emoji feature fixes

We continue to improve the recently introduced user-favorite emoji feature. Inserting an emoji into the WYSIWYG editor content will now become much more intuitive thanks to the autocomplete mechanism prioritizing entries that start from the used query (#2527). And good news for visual perfectionists — icons in the Emoji dropdown navigation groups are now centered 😉 (#2572).

# Using content filter to customize dialogs

CKEditor 4.11.3 also fixes an issue where the content filter (ACF) integration was broken in the Cell Properties dialog. This made the dialog show options that were disallowed in the ACF configuration. Thanks to the fix (#1986), you can continue using the content filter to precisely control the elements, styles and attributes that can appear in your content. ACF will then adjust the dialogs, toolbar and context menu to only show the options that are allowed.

After the fix, you can freely use the configuration like this, for example:

config.disallowedContent = 'td{height,background-color,border-color,vertical-align}[colspan,rowspan];th';

And get this simplified Cell Properties dialog, with the fields corresponding to disallowed features removed:

# Other fixes

Here are some other issues that were fixed in this release:

  • The order of sublist items is reversed when a higher level list item is removed (#2721, #487).
  • Items in the elements path can be dragged into the editor content (#1191).
  • Buttons in the editor toolbar are activated by clicking them with the right mouse button in Edge and Internet Explorer (#2565).
  • And last but not least, a bug in the Copy Formatting plugin caused some issues with widgets’ nested editables, focusing and undo (#2780, #2470, #2655).
