    We’ll set up our paste handling to parse for tabs and spaces and use that for hierarchy. Thanks for the suggestion!

        I see that this was marked completed this past week. That's great! I don't seem to see any difference in moo.do though when trying to paste hierarchical lists. Is the change going live soon? Thanks!

        Moo.do is really slick. This would be helpful for quickly getting info in and out. Not sure how some of the other features like linked emails would work with copy/paste, but at least basics like lists and headings and dates and tags would be nice to be able to paste. +1

        Liking the new markdown support, and it would go great with being able to copy trees from moo.do to edit them somewhere else and paste them back in to moo.do. Thanks for a great product!

        Hi there. Checking out moodo based on Slack conversations and also need this feature to be really productive. Thanks!

        Yes, really would like this to work. When I copy and paste from moo.do you do seem to keep the structure, but not when I paste back to moo.do.

        Hey guys, any update here? I'm sizing up options for managing my life after IQTell closed, and it's important to me to copy/paste back and forth between a text editor where I have the full power of that text editor and Moo.do. This seems like a really simple coding change to look for tabs and patterns of the same number of spaces between levels of pasted text (e.g. 4, 2).

        Not having this is a real pain for moving stuff into moo.do from other tools and outliners

        Is there any news about this function?
        Or it is still in process?
        Thanks!

        I tried pasting from a plain-text file and the hierarchical structure is lost. I tried one file with all tabs for indentation then again with spaces for indentation. Both were pasted with no indentation.

        notepad and word.
        I also use a small software in the windows to collect information. It's named Boogunote. When copy from the Boogunote, hierarchical structure identified with spaces.
        How to keep the hierarchical structure?
        Use the tab or space?
        I have tried many ways, but didn't find the right method.

        Thank you!

        Hi Ivan,

        When we have the hierarchical structure available to us in the pasted data we do follow it. If you have a list of other software that we currently do not do this for please send it to support@moo.do and we will take a look at it. Since the available data can vary widely based on the other software we have to look at it on a case-by-case basis.
