I cannot paste numbering correctly across tables (from MSWord into CKEditor)

Description (last modified by Olek Nowodziński)


  1. Create a simple 2x2 table in MSWORD. I used office 2007.
  2. Select the first column and apply numbering format.
  3. Select the table and copy to clipboard.
  4. Paste the table into a clear DEMO page. I used IE9.

RESULT: After paste I noticed that the numbering was applied but not incremental. There is a "1" in both cells. Please see attached picture!

This is MS Word feature.

It is not possible to continue list through HTML elements. In HTML what you have in first cell is one list and what you have in second cell is second list.
Theoretically it could be possible by analysing upper cell and adding start attribute to list in lower cell but I just don't see it as new core feature.

After discussing this issue with my colleagues we decided that this is not a good feature to implement.

In HTML each cell holds different list that are not related to each other in any way. Attribute start would only "work" on initial paste and it would only give visual effect. Few different lists could give impression that they act as one but like I said – they aren’t related with each other.
If for example you would increment list in first cell, the second list would not be incremented and whole structure would get broken.
