Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

In previous versions of WordPress, if you wrote a post outside of WordPress and then imported it, the import process would respect any Headings you made - so if you set H2, H3, H4, etc, in OneNote or Word, when you imported it, the Headings values you set would transfer to the Wordpress post.

Now, in 5.5, this no longer happens. If you paste in text, all the Headings come in as Paragraphs. This is incredibly annoying and it is very time-consuming to go back and change them, constantly referring to your written document to see what the Headings values should be.

I am submitting this as a bug, as this was not how previous versions worked and is not mentioned in the release notes, so I imagine it is unintended.
