Problem with non-breaking spaces


#1

Folding Text 2.1.1 doesn’t write non-breaking spaces. They are essential in French punctuation and in other situations. If I type a non-breaking space (Alt+Space Bar) it doesn’t write it. For instance, in French you must type a non-breaking space before a colon, an exclamation mark, a question mark, etc.

« Où est l’espace insécable ? »
“Where is the non-breaking space?”

If I write the sentence, copy and paste it in BBEdit in “Show Invisibles” mode, I notice that the non-breaking space is not before the colon despite the fact I typed it.

Very annoying to write French and to use the software as the main text editor.

Hi,

Thank you for writing in. Yes, this is a problem. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but the Codemirror editing component we’re using should handle this ok.

I’ve created an issue about this here.
