Copy and paste of list

Mukesh May 23, 2017 10:15AM PDT


I found yet another issue while I was trying to copy/paste an existing list within a give page. Problem is that outline pastes everything but messes up the order of line items. See below..

First level 1 item (and sub levels below) were typed by me. Second level 1 item is copy and paste of first one and so is 3rd level 1 item. As you can see the order of items in level 1.2 is messed up across both pastes... all the content is there except in some random order. this is really frustrating ... I am having to manually adjust the order and worse yet... outline doesn't support cutting an entire line with newline at the end to simply do CMD-X/CMD-V... I have to press enter to create a new placeholder and then paste the content and then delete the previous placeholder

a. Level 1 line
i. level 1.1
ii. level 1.2:
1) level 1.2.1
2) level 1.2.2
3) level 1.2.3
4) level 1.2.4
5) level 1.2.5
6) level 1.2.6
7) level 1.2.7
b. Level 1 line
i. level 1.1
ii. level 1.2:
1) level 1.2.1
2) level 1.2.2
3) level 1.2.6
4) level 1.2.7
5) level 1.2.3
6) level 1.2.4
7) level 1.2.5
c. Level 1 line
i. level 1.1
ii. level 1.2:
1) level 1.2.5
2) level 1.2.6
3) level 1.2.7
4) level 1.2.1
5) level 1.2.2
6) level 1.2.3
7) level 1.2.4

I created a brand new page to see if this was problem with the WIP page... to no avail

Thank you for reporting this!

And I think with this situation, I would need the video.
Could you please send it to me?
You can write to to send the link / video itself.

It looks like something we need to fix, so to present it to the devs I would need to be able to show / recreate the case.
I would really appreciate your help here!
