Steps to reproduce

Please try copying content with text and images from Microsoft Word and paste into any editor/textarea on the web through IE11. The text is pasted without the images. This seems to occur after updating to Internet Explorer 11.0.110. There was no issue with copying and pasting images from word to IE11 before this update.

    • Copying anything from Word into a normal textarea on a browser will strip out any rich text content (including images).

      A text area on a website only supports text unless it’s a rich text editor such as tinymce or other third party javascript plugins.

    • @Fred, thank you for the response.
      I am indeed trying to paste the contents into tinymce. I am unable to paste the images from word to IE after the update to 11.0.110.

    • I have the exact same issue using tinyMCE. And it also happens in both gmail and hotmail editor, always using IE11. The issue does not happen in Chrome.
