Hello found this bug earlier today.


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

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 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.
