How do I copy and paste a page containing action items without the checkboxes pasting as bullets? Edited

I have a page on confluence containing a list of tasks with checkboxes/action items. I want to paste that list of tasks into a new document, with each checkbox item remaining a checkbox item. When I copy from that page or the page's editor to the new page, the items paste with bullets instead of checkboxes. Selecting the items and clicking the checkbox button next to the bullets buttons in the editor doesn't do anything. 

How do I copy the contents of a Confluence page containing checkboxes to a new document without the checkbox items being converted to bullet point items?

Hi Adrian,

When you're copying the page content, are you in edit mode?

Yes, I've tried both in edit mode and not. 

Hmm... I don't seem to see the same behavior on my side (also cloud). I create a page and use [] to add check boxes. Then I publish the page, edit it again, copy the content and paste it in a new page. Check boxes are copied too.

I've linked a screen recording of the problem

Thanks for the help so far. Can you suggest a next step to resolve this?

Hey Adrian, can you please add a screenshot of what you're seeing? Thanks!
