Hi Rahul,

When you paste in a Silverlight application, the text is converted to plain text. This is due to the fact that the clipboard in Silverlight does not support rich text. Because of that, not all bulleting symbols are converted as you expect and the text is stripped of its styles. 

However, it is possible to use the tick symbol as a bullet. Based on this article I created a sample that shows how you can register a new bulleted list. Please, find the sample project attached.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.

Hi Petya,

I tried your solution of providing custom bullets. Problem here is, if I save file as html and reload it again in RadRichTextBox control. All my custom bullets get lost and changed into plain bullets. How can I tackle this??
Quick reply is highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rahul

Hi Rahul,

The default classes for unordered list in HTML do not contain tick. In order to use a custom list in HTML, you have to embed an image as a bullet.

On the other hand, the solution I earlier provided creates the bullets based on a symbol. This is one of the reasons why RadRichTextBox's HtmlFormatProvider does not support export of custom bullets and converts them. At this point, we are not considering implementing such feature.

Just an idea. Can't you use another format for intermediate document storage, like Xaml? This might be possible if you do not edit the Html in another editor. This way you will not have any troubles converting bullets back.
