Spaces collapsed on copy

N.B.

I鈥檓 going to use to denote spaces because Discourse messes with them even inside code blocks (!!).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create an item with contents Foo路路路Bar
  2. Select the text (NOT the whole item)
  3. Copy
  4. Paste anywhere

Expected result

Foo路路路Bar is pasted.

Actual result

Foo路Bar is pasted (the spaces are collapsed).

Environment

Chrome on OS X

Additional information

This doesn鈥檛 happen if you select whole items.

Temporary Workaround until this gets fixed

Select the whole item to copy.

Did Discourse just collapsed your spaces too? I can鈥 tell which one should have a single space and which one should have multiple spaces :frowning:

Wow, Discourse did collapse my spaces even inside code blocks. Not cool.

Anyway, I edited my question to use interpuncts to denote spaces.

I think this problem has come up before. Will verify.

Btw: why are you using multiple spaces? Is it for something special?

I often have 3鈥5 spaces between long LaTeX 鈥榓nnotations鈥 and normal text for visual clarity, mostly in my math notes.
