Double bolded text after copy and paste in some browers


The bug from this topic: Copy and paste bold text results in a double bold text in Firefox and IE is still happens in Confluence 6.1.2. Can you fix this?

Quick steps to reproduce (from original topic):

  1. Create a new page using any browser
  2. Type a text bold
  3. Select the text and bold the text
  4. Select the bold text and copy it
  5. Place your cursor after bold text (besides letter d)
  6. Ensure that the bold icon is turned on/selected and then press ENTER to go to the second paragraph
  7. Paste the text
  8. Copy the text that you pasted in the previous step
  9. Paste the text into the third paragraph

The problem occurs in IE and Firefox.


Regards, Maciej.

Thank you for this feedback! I've reopened the case and placed an internal comment there letting the development team know that you have provided a good set of instructions for replicating.

I'm also including your version 6.1.2 as an affected version.

Kind Regards,
