    I have not been able to replicate this with a default Drupal 10.x install.

    I can see in your example markup there looks to be some custom stuff coming through, Blazy classes and is-b-loaded. Could this potentially be in an issue in the theme/site you're using?

    Could you please try replicate this on a vanilla Drupal 9/10 install and let us know if the issue still persists?

    Note: is for CKEditor 4, not 5. Just clarified that at the top of the page.

    however it does not align as expected after save. See images attached


    Could you share:

    1. the embedded media markup stored in the DB/what you see in the "Source" view of CKEditor 5
    2. already present 👍
    3. which theme you are using?

    (I share @DanielVeza's suspicion.)

    This is reproducible on D10 as well with Ckeditor5 - enabled Claro theme to validate if it is not custom theme related.

  • 🇺🇸United States ksenzee Seattle area

    Folks experiencing this issue should double-check that the media template in use (media.html.twig, or media--image.html.twig, or whatever) is properly outputting its attributes. If you have a media.html.twig that removes the wrapper div core provides, that will cause this issue. It needs to have

    <div{{ attributes }}>
      {{ content }}

    as opposed to just

    {{ content }}

  • This is reproducible in Drupal 10.1.8, CKEditor 5.
    #10 didn't help in my case.
    Is there any other recommendation/solution for this issue, please?

  • We hit this same problem. I have a wrapper div with "align-center" but the styles applied do not center the image. The "margin:0 auto" does not work for my site. I cannot figure out why. There is no class applied on the image itself.

    I was able to workaround it by adding "text-align:center" to the "align-center" class.

    I am having this issue too drupal 10.2 vanilla install ckeditor5 media embed remote video, centering works in editor but not on front end. A regular image works as expected.
