Export Plain Text defaults to Spaces, even when another style is shown as selected



Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a basic list of items, length irrelavent
  2. Choose Export from the floating hamburger
  3. In Export dialog, choose Plain Text, and either Asterisks or Dashes
  4. Close dialog
  5. On the same, or another list, go to Export Plain Text
  6. The export preview will show spaces formatting, but the dialog has your previous style still selected

Expected result

What do you expect to see after carrying out the steps above?
Export dialog should correctly style the exported data based on the style previously selected, and which is still shown as selected in the dialog

Actual result

Instead of the expected result, what happened?

Export dialog defaults to spaces despite the format style selector having your previous style still selected

Additional comments

Love the product, it’s been a wonderful experience after Workflowy. This is a tiny problem but incredibly annoying when you’re trying to repeatedly copy exported data into another application.
