Pasting into HTML macro partially decodes HTML

I've noticed that pasting into an HTML macro (old editor) has recently broken.


If you do something as simple as type this:


And then copy and paste it, it will be pasted as ">" instead of "&gt;".  This breaks my ability to use HTML macros.  I paste in relatively large blocks of HTML that include hundreds of &gt; and &lt; which now get replaced by <> which ends up being invalid HTML.

Hello, was the ticket already created / issue solved? The only thing I found was this page, which neither has a reply not a ticket attached. (

I am facing the same issue currently and would love to have a good solution.

I raised a bug on another page.  The bug was acknowledged years ago, but no progress has been made on a fix.  I get the impression that they have no interest in fixing this.

In the end, I created a script to escape all my HTML before copying it into the clipboard.  That way, when I pasted, it looked correct.
