Your documentation promises the ability to access the pasteboard data in multiple formats: https://developer.apple.com/library/iad/documentation/AppleApplications/Conceptual/SafariJSProgTopics/Tasks/CopyAndPaste.html
however, if i copy rich text from e.g. Pages.app, i cannot read the rich text from within Safari.
you can verify this here:
Chrome and Firefox do not expose this problem. Firefox even gives access to RTF data when rich text is on the pasteboard.
Yeah, please fix this. This is a very irritating bug.
We need this in a system running for the City of Gothenburg, Sweden. Right now we have to tell all our users that they need to use Google Chrome instead ;-/. Thanks.
the issue is still present in Safari 10.
Please fix as soon as possible.
It appears that any macOS pasteboard type which isn’t utf-8 plain text will return an empty string in the paste event.
It’d be lovely if this could be improved!
