RichTextBox problem with Styles with characters like Tildes on the name when copy from MS Word

Hi support,

We have a problem when we copy a text from MS word to RitchTextBox.
If the text copied uses an style that the namecontains tilde, then style name on the ritchtextbox is broken with strange characters.
All works well with this strange characters, but if you export to html and then import to ritchtextbox, the style is lost ...

This is a big problem because in spanish, many styles have tildes. When our user copy content from word they have problem with html format export / import.

I Attach a MS Word docx with a style with tildes:

Steps to reproduce it:

1- Open MS Word attached.
2- Copy the content.
3- Open a ritchTextBox Editor
4- Paste the content.
5- Export to html
6- Import the html.

You can see now, that the style are lost, and the name of the style contains strange characters.

Similar issue its happen when open a Word Docx with styles with tildes from ritchTextBox, not include strange characters but the style is lost.


Thanks for you support,

Hello Jose Ramon,

Thank you for reporting both issues and for the detailed description provided. I was able to reproduce them and logged them in our feedback portal. I updated your Telerik points as a gratitude to your findings.

I am afraid I cannot provide a workaround for them at this moment. Please subscribe for the items in order to get notified when their status change:
 - Pasting style from Word with accent letters in the name is not properly displayed in the Styles Gallery
Linked style is lost on export with HtmlFormatProvider

Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.
