Pasting a numbers from Excel wit the form 0.999 into a table results in cells with the values 1. 999


I have an excel spreadsheet with numbers of the form 0.75464, i.e. Zero Point a string of numbers.

I paste this into a Confluence Cloud Table and the cells with these numbers in are transformed into table cells <td>, containing ordered lists <ol> with the fractional part (or mantissa) only of the number appearing as a list item. This is therefore rendering the number with a proceeding 'Item number' which makes it appear as if it is 1.XXXX, e.g. 1. 75464.

This did not happen on local Confluence Server. I have tried formatting the numbers differently in excel but to no avail. I am using MacOS 10. I have tried with the latest Safari and Chrome.

Hello John,

Thank you for all the testing you did on this issue!

You've run into a bug that we discovered in Confluence Cloud, which I reported below:

  • CONFCLOUD-68744 Pasting single digit decimal numbers in new editor results in numbered list replacing the first digit

It appears to be related to the formatting, so pasting the contents into a code block or pasting from a raw text document appear to work without auto-formatting to a numbered list.

Please watch that bug so you can be updated when there are any changes or fixes released.

Thank you again.
