EditLive - Mac Safari issue when pasting content from external tool like MS Word

With the release of Safari 6.1 (for OS X 10.7 and 10.8) and Safari 7 (OS X 10.9) Apple has taken a sandboxing approach to Oracle’s Java plugin whether or not the applet is signed. With this release, you may not able to copy and paste content from Microsoft Word or any text editor to EditLive successfully. You may see the error I IO error while dropping. <java.io.IOException: Font transform has NaN position>java.io.IOException: Font transform has NaN position exception[/I] in java console log.

Ephox support provided following configuration in Safari to resolve this issue:

  1. In the Safari menu, click Preferences.

  2. Click the Security tab, then click Manage Website Settings…

  3. Click the Java plugin on the left, then click the dropdown next to your site that includes EditLive!

  4. Select Run in Unsafe mode

  5. Select Trust on the security warning that appears.

  6. Click the Done button to apply the new settings.
