I'm using WYGWAM version 2.5 and I was able to copy paste into the field. Now nothing gets pasted except an empty paragraph.

I had set forcePasteAsPlainTExt set to yes.

Any suggestions?

  • Are you working with IE11? I think thereis some problem with this version of IE.

  • But then what is the workaround? How do I make it work in IE11?

This is bug with ckeditor upon which WYGWAM is built. You have to update to at least WYGWAM 3.3 which fixes all IE11 issues per this comment: https://expressionengine.stackexchange.com/a/20227/69
