TinyMCE Bullets with periods don't come through properly from Microsoft Word 2016

Description

Copy/pasting text from a bulleted item using Microsoft Word 2016 will remove all of the text that appears before a period in the list item.

For example, if you copy the following from a Word document bulleted list:

  • 1222222.4 mm body thickness

and paste it into the default WP editor, it will appear as this:

  • 4 mm body thickness

This only occurs in the Visual Editor and not the Text Editor portion of the editor.

Hi @jaredt112, thanks for the bug report.

This seems to be a known issue upstream in TinyMCE: https://github.com/tinymce/tinymce/issues/2810. I'm afraid we can't do much about it, has to be fixed in TinyMCE. Perhaps leave a comment there giving as much details as possible.

Closing as invalid as this is an upstream bug.
