    Hi I have an issue with 'Paste from Word' option of telerik Editor. When i copy some text from MSWord and paste it in the editor using 'Paste from Word'  option, the indentation of  some lines changes. I also tried this on Telerik's demo site:

    and the issue is present there as well. I have attached  original document and the screenshot of the changed indentation after using 'Paste from Word'.

    I have tried this on IE and Chrome as well and the issue occurs on both.

    Please look  into it as this changes the text to an unacceptable format.

    Hi Shikhar,

    Could you try the following:

    • paste the content into the following editable <div>. I am asking for this because RadEditor works with the content the browser provides and it is very likely that the browser strips the formatting you want:
      <div contentEditable="true" style="width: 400px; height: 400px; border: 2px solid red;"></div>

      If the behavior is the same between RadEditor and this div, then the issue comes from the browser and RadEditor cannot fix this.
    • try setting the StripFormattingOptions property to None so RadEditor will not modify the content from Word.

    On a side note - forums only accept images as attachment so the document itself is not available. If the suggestions above do not help, I advise that you open a formal support ticket where you can attach a zip with your file so we can investigate.
