Copied bullets lose indentation on first copy attempt (but retain indentation on subsequent attempts)


#1

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new document with this content
  • lol
    • test
  1. Highlight the bullets with text and press Ctrl-C.
  2. Go to the empty bullet and type Ctrl-V.

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?

  • lol
    • test
  • lol
    • test

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?

  • lol
  • test
  • lol
    • test

But if I copy the same text and paste again, the indentation is usually retained.

Environment

I get this with the desktop app on Linux and the web app on Chrome on macOS. I haven’t tested other environments. It’s been a bug for many months, and I keep the desktop app up to date.


#2

Sadly I can’t repro on Windows. It might be a Linux-exclusive bug but I doubt it.

Any other linux user can help verify this?


#3

It does seem as though I can reproduce the problem more reliably on Linux than on macOS. Here’s a screen recording taken on my Mac. After I made the recording, I couldn’t reproduce the bug again, even after reloading the Web page or app. But I can consistently reproduce it on Linux (Chrome and app).
