      Description

      Hello Team,

      Version 4 is becoming a bit elderly and out of line with new versions of popular browsers. In particular, we have problems with Paste From Word, where recent browser security features that block programmatic copy-and-paste functionality effectively render CKEditor 4's corresponding buttons useless.

      Paste From Word is very important to us. Our content creators are a diverse and widespread group and it's hard to dissuade them from using Word to compose web content articles. The result is often articles that contain fonts, colors, and formatting that doesn't comply with our requirement for a uniform look-and-feel across the portal.

      With CKEditor version 4 and a modern browser, the Paste From Word button is pretty much unusable. Users need to click at least one button such as "Tx" in order to strip Microsoft styling. Our users are by no means disciplined to do that. We need a UX whereby users cannot avoid the styling removal filter. CKEditor 5 handles this functionality in a different and much better way.
