Bullets not removed



Bullets are not removed when content is deleted.

  1. Create text editor on a div
  2. Input some text
  3. Make it bold and underline
  4. Make it bulleted
  5. Add few more bullets
  6. Select all bullets
  7. Press backspace

Observe that two bullet points remain

Node.textContent returns the text content of the node and its descendants. The remaining empty bullets are descendants of the editor element, but as they have no text content, it is expected that textContent returns empty string. I cannot advise if this approach for determining if the content is empty is recommended, as it may return true in scenarios other than the one with bullets, e.g. an empty table added.
The Editor provides a value() method, which returns the value and the respective bullet nodes are present when using it.

Hello Team, when this is issue happens is there a way to identify that the content is empty.  With below code, we get the results of isEmpty as true even when bullets are not fully cleared.  Please confirm if this is also a known issue.


  public isEmpty(): boolean {
    return this.helper.isStringNullOrEmpty(this.nativeElement?.textContent?.trim());

  public isStringNullOrEmpty(entity: string): boolean {
    return entity === undefined || entity === null || entity === '';

Hi ,

Thank you for this feedback, I am converting it to a publicly visible bug report, which may be tracked for any progress on it. Currently there is no workaround for it and if any is found, it will be included in the thread. As a small token of gratitude for this report, I updated your Telerik points.
