We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.5.8. This is a minor release that includes some bug fixes and a new configuration option for the color picker. Read on for more information!
Updated Color Picker
The color picker that is available through the Color Button plugin just got a new configuration option to allow for further customization of the color selector. When set to
config.colorButton_enableAutomatic setting lets you disable the "Automatic" color option. This - alongside the
config.colorButton_colors option that you can use to customize the color list - allows you, for example, to achieve the following effect:
It is worth noting, though, that the Text and Background Color feature does not create semantically meaningful content. To create semantic content and also maintain consistent styling across your website, including user-created content, consider configuring the Styles drop-down list to include some colored styles that could be used by your users and would match your website design instead of enabling the Text and Background Color buttons and dealing with a stylistic nightmare later.
This release also contains a few bug fixes. An issue with scrollbar missing when text direction was set to RTL for bi-directional text was resolved. Context menus are also no longer cut-off in Microsoft Edge and the order of table elements generated by the editor was fixed to comply with the HTML specification.
