  • Component changed from Editor to TinyMCE
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 4.6

Hi @s0what, thanks for the bug report.

It doesn't even convert to integers, seems it discards the number(s) before the dot. I see you've already opened an issue for TinyMCE:, assuming you were able to reproduce this in the demo (

The WordPress bug will be fixed after this is fixed upstream and we update TinyMCE.

Unfortunately this can only be fixed upstream. Closing as maybelater for now, will be fixed when (if?) it is fixed upstream.
