#3828 closed New Feature (fixed)

Paste from Word - bullets not reproduced

Reported by: damo Owned by: garry.yao
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 3.1
Component: Plugin : Paste from Word Version:
Keywords: IBM Confirmed Paste Review+ Cc:


When using Paste from Word dialog to paste a bullet list with indented bullet items the list is not preserved correctly. It appears that that sub lists are actually created as separate lists.

Use attached sample Word document to reproduce.

Currently we don't support mso-list in our paste from word function, so it's a feature.

We're not supposed to have changes to the paster from Words features. We have enhancements planned for the 3.1, and we could consider this one at that point.

The list in the attachment doc is representing the following HTML( which is surprising, since we normally don't expect an output with correct html list tags ):

<ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="disc">
	<li class="MsoNormal" style=""><span lang="EN-IE">Sdfd</span></li>
	<ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="circle">
		<li class="MsoNormal" style=""><span lang="EN-IE">This line is indented bullets</span>
		<ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="square">
			<li class="MsoNormal" style=""><span lang="EN-IE">And this line is indented again</span>

It would be helpful if you could give me some clue on how this doc is produced( was unable to create a list manually in MS-Word version 2003/2007 which output the same markup as it )? Or it's been generated( Convert from some other application format)?

In any case, we'll probably target cleanup to this as a more generic html cleanup( <ul>s should not be nested ) instead of a MS-Word only cleanup.

After a discussion, this particular fixing should be present as a core fixing at the parser level, makes it more generic.
