Paste as HTML

Postby pmk65 » Thu Dec 22, 2016 2:12 pm

When you mark/copy a fragment of a webpage in a browser, the clipboard contains both a HTML and a TEXT version of the copied section.

WeBuilder currently only supports pasting in the TEXT part not the HTML.
So it would be nice to have an additional paste option that could insert the HTML part of the clipboard.

Ok, I'll add this to suggestions. How would you personally use this feature in real-life scenario if we added it?

Let's say you have a website with some data displayed in a table. So I mark the table and select Copy.
Then in WeBuilder I would use the "Paste as HTML" function to insert the HTML code of the copied data.
(A "normal" paste in WeBuilder only inserts the text copied, not the HTML.)

I tried writing a (Chromium) plugin to do it, but I can't access the Copy/Paste from scripting without having a plugin window open.
