Pasting text - Bullets no longer showing up

I copy text from Word into Dreamweaver to format.  Up until recently, when I would copy and paste lists the bullet points or numbers from the lists would show up when pasted.  Within the last week, the bullet points and numbers from the list have not been pasting into Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is up-to-date.  I have restarted my computer, but that did not help. 

I am using a Windows computer. and have version 21.3

Switch to DESIGN View (Ctrl + Shift + F11).

Go to Edit > Paste Special > Text with Structure (paragraphs, lists, etc...)

 

If you're still having trouble, validate code & fix reported errors.

Window > Results > Validation.... check document.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi Nancy, thanks for sharing.  While this works, it creates other issues because I usually copy and past last amounts of text from Word into Dreamweaver.

 

I don't think my inital provided as many details as it oculd have. I used to copy and paste text from Word into the Code window in Dreamweaver. When I would paste it, the actual bullets (-) or numneration ( a), b), etc.) would appear, not <ul>, <ol> <li>, <li>.  Recently, probably within the last two or three weeks, when I paste the content from word into the code window, the bullets and numeration do not get pasted.

Did you validate code and fix reported errors?

I did not - because there is nothing to check at this point - I haven't started adding the html, it is just text from a Word document.

In the absense of any tags, your code isn't fit for web use. Browsers are not word processors.  They get their instructions from HTML tags.

Hi Nancy - yes, I am aware of this.  I start by copying and pasting from Word into Dreamweaver, and then I add the tags.  Until very recently, I when I pasted the content from Word, the bullet points would appear in Dreamweaver as they did in Word, and then I could search and replace them with list tags. Now when I paste the content, no bullet points appear, so I have nothing to search and replace.

1. This might be due to the document's character encoding.

File > Page Properties > Title/encoding > Encoding:

Are you using character set Unicode UTF-8 or something else?

 

2. When DW acts erratically, Restoring Preferences fixes most problems.
