I'm copying data from Excel to a table but numbers like:
are automatically changed to a numbered list 1.94 and 1.12
I can't copy using CTRL+SHIFT+V because then the data won't go into the cells properly. Can we disable this automatic list? It's a terrible experience!
When you say you are copying data from Excel to a table, are you simply copying a couple of rows in your Excel and then dropping them into a blank page, which auto creates the table or are you copying into an already defined table?
I ask because I just copied a couple of rows from a sheet in Google & Excel with numbers containing decimals and pasted into a blank page. It worked just fine.
I also copied and entire column of decimals, and it auto-created a table with all the values in it.
I also copied the decimals and overwrote my cells in a table and they too copied okay. I am not experiencing what you are experiencing.
I use Right Click Mouse and Paste - works perfectly,
I also tried CTRL+V to paste - works perfectly.
What i do sometimes is use text concatenation in to a helper cell with wiki markup. Then copying that in to a wiki markup marco.
E.g. in Excel Column D
Header Row function ="||"&TEXTJOIN("||",FALSE,A1:C1)&"||"
Other Rows function ="|"&TEXTJOIN("|",FALSE,A2:C2)&"|"

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.
