Cut and Paste (CMD+X -> CMD+P) does not restore pasted custom block with it's data

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description


In our app we have lot’s of “Enrichments”. They can have several different types (eg. image, audio, …). Because of legacy reasons we cannot simply render a <img> or <audio> tag.

Nevertheless, I was able to register and add custom tools (with React support) for each enrichment type. BUT when one moves them with CMD+X and CMD+P they are added as a simple paragraph or when the block is detected without data.


  • I am not sure if the pasteConfig is correct, as I render a div with some other elements inside. Not sure what’s the correct pattern/tag then.
  • Not sure how to make sure onPaste receives existing data from the pasted block as well.

Expected outcome

I can copy and paste existing blocks with all it’s data within the Editor container.
