    Hello found this bug earlier today.

    As you can see below the picture proves it is formated correctly when making the thread.

    Now time to post... The formating disappears!

    The output indicates it's nested lists correctly. I can't confirm this on Chrome, FF, Opera, or IE8.

    Can you link to an example that's doing this for you? Can you confirm it here? Also, what browser?

    I think I know why this happened. Copied and pasted the document from Word 2010.

    I can see it happening, though what's coming out isn't actually a list so it may not be fixable.

    This is indeed down to how Word represents the text as HTML - it's not actually a list, so it doesn't get converted as one. It uses some properties like text-indent or margins that are quite hard to translate (to the limited set of BB code), as well as some Word-proprietary ones (mso-list), combined with using fonts like Wingdings to represent the bullets.

    We might be able to translate the margin/text-indent, though that's a big challenge, but since it's not submitting as a list, it's not really feasible to translate to a list.
