Ask questionsIssue with updated demo editor

Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?


What is the current behavior?

The website was recently updated. The new demo editor on the site has a bug with pasting.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to
  2. Copy and then paste something like "test" into the editor at the bottom of the page
  3. Type the left arrow once so the cursor should be before the final "t". E.g. "tes|t" (note do not click, the bug is shown when you use keyboard navigation).
  4. Paste again.

The paste will incorrectly be placed at the end of the "test", not at the cursor's location. The results will be "testtest" rather than "testestt".

The old demo editor behaved correctly and did not have this issue.

Running this on the latest version of Chrome.
