Trouble when paste material from text editor (MS Word, for example) in Dynalist: formatting is not preserved


Steps to reproduce


  1. Copy the following text from a MS Word document: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam eget ligula eu lectus lobortis condimentum. Aliquam nonummy auctor massa. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Nulla at risus. Quisque purus magna, auctor et, sagittis ac, posuere eu, lectus. Nam mattis, felis ut adipiscing.”
  2. Paste the text in Dynalist

Expected result

The formmating (bold and italics) should be preserved.

Actual result

The formmating (bold and italics) are not preserved.


Win 10, Google Chrome.

Additional information

This problem arises when I copy text from places other than a MS Word document, which I use only as an example. I’ve tried to copy and paste from Evernote and the same thing happens.
Probably other formatting like images, tables etc. are not preserved as well. But for my needs it would be enough that bold and italics were preserved.


I’ll take a look. I believe we were already aware of this from another report and it’s on our todo list, but we’ll get it fixed soon.

Thank you very much, Shida! Looking forward for it!

A fix has been developed and it will be released in the next patch!
