Chrome in Windows has Paste: Control + V and Paste as Plain Text: Control + Shift + V.
It worked everywhere but Confluence.
Why? Is there another shortcut to it?
Yes, the rich text editor in Confluence doesn't appear to support the Control + Shift + V command.
If you are just copying and pasting other web content in Chrome to Confluence, you could try installing an add-on from the Chrome Web Store to help strip the formatting?
BTW have you considered raising this issue as a feature/bug request? https://jira.atlassian.com
Unfortunately Confluence overrides Cmd-Shift-V / Ctrl-Shift-V as a shortcut for 'Paste Row Before' within tables.
I've created a bookmarklet you can use to override this behavior:
To use it open the Bookmark Manager in Chrome and choose 'Add New Bookmark'. In the URL section copy and paste the above. It should look like this:
Next time you're in the Confluence editor click the bookmark first (it won't be obvious anything has happened), then use Cmd+Shift+V and it should work as normal.
unfortunately this bookmarklet does not work with tinyMCE 4+, the new way to disable the shortcut is via the tinyMCE API https://www.tiny.cloud/docs-4x/api/tinymce/tinymce.shortcuts/
Thanks - I tried this out, unfortunately I could not get it to work.
From the Chrome console, I get:
Uncaught TypeError: require(...).editors.shortcuts.remove is not a function
With some minor modifications to debug, it seems to me that the require is actually not succeeding in my environment, even though the error is about .remove() . I'm new to JS though.
Any other thoughts on how to debug this and get it to work?
Update: A coworker who is way smarter than me provided the following bookmarklet, which works at the moment but could break in the future.
👋 Hi there, a few of us at Atlassian would love to learn about how you use "space settings" functionality in Confluence. A facelift to the space settings is long overdue and we want to start with im...
