Paste hierarchical bullet list from Microsoft Word

If you copy paste a hierarchical numbered bullet list from Microsoft Word into the Editor, it will initially appear correct.

However, if you then attempt to add a new bullet by adding a newline, there will not be a new bullet with the correct number added.

Instead, it will add a new line. See the attached screenshot for clarification.

Support hierarchical bullet lists pasted from Microsoft Word in Kendo for Angular Editor component.

We are declining this request due to low interest and demand. If it turns out to be popular in the future, we will reconsider the status.

Hi Ludwig,

In general, the Editor is still in its beta version and we are currently working on adding new features and fixing its known issues. However, the Editor component does not support a hierarchical bullet list pasted from Microsoft Word document.

That is why I changed the Type of this thread to a Feature Request and modified the title in order to be more descriptive. We will track and estimate the customer demand for this feature request and prioritize accordingly when updating our Roadmap.

As a side note, the jQuery Editor component supports pasting a hierarchical numbered list from Word. We can use any Kendo UI for jQuery widget in an Angular application. Please, check this article from our documentation which explains step by step how to integrate a jQuery widget in Angular:

I also noticed that you opened a thread to our colleagues from Kendo UI for jQuery suite. My suggestion is to wait for their response for further clarifications as they will be able to provide the most precise answer on that topic.

Please feel free to write back if any further assistance is required for Kendo UI for Angular.
