How to copy-paste a LIST of items into a Table (cells) in Google Docs

If you try to copy a list and then paste it into a table (in Google Docs) it pastes everything into the same cell rather than pasting each item in every row/column.

Quick Workaround.
  1. Copy the list of items
  2. Open a new google spreadsheet (use short URL) or a dummy sheet
  3. Paste the contents to the sheet
  4. Again copy from the sheet
  5. Now, paste them into the table.

Until Google adds a feature for this, use this workaround.
