Keywords: Oracle CantFix Cc: Senthil, Pranav

Description

Create a bullet list as shown below:

Bullet List

  • Item One
  • Item Two
  • Item Three
  • Item Four

Now select second item in bullet list i.e. "Item Two". Click on Cut button on tool bar to cut the item. You will observe that it cuts only text not the bullet. Now place your cursor at end of content and click on paste button on toolbar. You will observe only text is pasted, not the bullet.

This issue was reproducible in nightly build too with Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.6.

These kinds of selection and clipboard operations are totally controlled by the browser, which doesn't offer a feature to cut a bullet.

Much probably this is related to the fact that we're dealing with HTML here. If you would cut a single list item, you would have an <li> element, which later would be pasted without a proper <ul> or <ol> element. In fact, if you select all items in the list, the <ul> element is copied and then properly pasted later.

We don't have ways to have the current behavior changed. This should be reported to the browser vendors.
