Lists do not work as expected with divs #5075

  1. Goto editor e.g. at
  2. Insert <div>a<br /><br />b<br />c</div> via Source code.
  3. Select "c"
  4. Click Numbered list or Bullet list.

The whole div content becomes a list entry.

Only the last ("c") line becomes a list. Also, if you select "b" and "c" I'd expect a list with two elements (1. "b", 2. "c").

I'm not sure it is a know limitation of the lists plugin, but I hope this is not an intended behavior.

It's not just div, the same will happen with p tags. br is not a DOM block boundary and many operations (list, block style, alignment) operate on block boundaries.

We have had a few discussions internally about switching TinyMCE to work like our editor, which introduced the concept of "quasi blocks" where br is a boundary and your example works, but it's not a small change.
