When copying text from another bullet point, the formatting is lost in some instances


  • Yes, copying over the formatting syntax.
  • No, just copy the text between the formatting syntax only.

Edit: I’ve changed this post up a bit, to where this used to be a feature request with a poll, but I’ve moved this to the bugs section.

If you copy **bold**, it will paste as bold. The same goes for italics.


I genuinely can’t imagine someone voting no. Even if they wanted to paste plain text—a perfectively reasonable intention I often want to have—there’s an easy way to achieve that in a system where formatting is by default preserved (paste into a plain text editor or something, then copy that), whereas there isn’t as easy a way to preserve formatting in a system that by default loses it.

User information should not be (implicitly) destroyed. Users should not be surprised.


I’m assuming this is for the “no” case?


Yes, and the current case win10/desktop+browser.

Sorry for not clarifying this in the OP.

@Yatharth_Agarwal, can you test this with italics and bold to see if it works as expected in OSX?


Sounds like a copy & paste bug, will fix!


Thank you! So far I’ve only noticed this with bold and italics, but not with text formatted as code.


Italics and bold don’t work, thought code formatting is indeed preserved in Chrome on OS X.


Hi there!
I’m getting the same here: italics and bold are lost when I copy a texto from one bullet point and paste it into another one. Also, if I copy some text from a MS Word document and paste it into Dynalist, the italics and bold are gone. Is there some way to prevent this to happen? I’d really like to preserve the formatting when copying and pasting to Dynalist.
