      Summary

      Markdown converter in Confluence does not handle Indentation correctly

      Environment

      Confluence 6.7.2
      Confluence 6.11.1

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Create a new Page
      2. Open the Markup Converter (Ctrl+Shift+D)
      3. Select Markdown from the dropdown list
      4. Paste the Markdown format below:
        * Bullet 1
        * Bullet 2
          * Bullet 2a
          * Bullet 2b
        

      Expected Results

      The Preview section should look like this according to the Markdown inserted:

      Actual Results

      The bullet and indent are not being converted correctly as seen below:

      Information

      However, if there is following outdented bullet in the next line, the markdown will be converted correctly:

      * Bullet 1
      * Bullet 2
        * Bullet 2a
        * Bullet 2b
      * Bullet 3
      

      The same Markdown format is tested on the online site below and it proved that Confluence is not handling it correctly:
