In Confluence Wiki editor (as of March 2020):
Expected & Actual result: multiple paragraphs in a single 'quote' block
Expected & Actual result: multiple lines (paragraphs) in a single 'code' block
Expected result: multi-paragraph quote
Actual result: first paragraph is quoted, rest is not
Question: Why does this not work when scenario 1 works? There should NOT be wildly different behaviour between pasting and typing a bunch of text.
Expected result: text converted into quote
Actual result: new quote inserted after selected text
(FYI: this doesn't work for 'code' either - it should work for both)

Workaround, for plaintext, on MacOS:
Update: further testing reveals that it's not just any block text, but specifically text containing bullets (other special characters might trigger the same behaviour).
When the parser sees the bullet in the pasted text, it triggers logic that goes "bullets can't go in quotes, so end the quote".
Better logic would be "bullets can't go in quotes, so just include it raw".
When I paste "quoted" text from Mail, Mail's "quoting" (leading > ) escapes the asterisks so they don't auto-convert to bullets and break the quote.
