Avoid Rendering Decimals and Minus Sign as List?

Hi recently when I tried to copy and paste data into tables in the new Confluence pages, I noticed that numbers with the following patterns will always be rendered into list:

* Decimals with leading integer less than 10 (e.g. 8.7 will be rendered as 1. 7)

* Numbers with a minus sign (e.g. -38.89% will be rendered as * 38.89%)

Screen Shot 2019-12-17 at 10.13.15 AM.png(Notice the cells with " 1. 00" and "* 4.00")

I have tried pasting both formatted and unformatted data and both ways failed to prevent this behavior.

Although I can imagine that such conversion is helpful for some users, I would appreciate if there is a way to avoid it as I believe that many users use Confluence tables to document pure numbers and that having to manually convert these lists back to numbers will likely drive some of them crazy.

Just manually convert them. Don't be lazy.
