Owen,

It's difficult to show the presence of non-breaking spaces on text pasted into this website's questions & comments. I've only just realised that files can be attached. I've tried to attach a small file containing just one paragraph as an example of this problem, but it says that my karma needs to be > 3! What nonsense: I don't know how to raise my karma & I've no intention of wasting my time finding out!

I think there is a bug in the way that non-breaking space characters cause arbitrary line feeds on very long lines. If they worked correctly, then offending paragraphs would only be on one line rather than multiple lines.

Please see link text for more detail.

LibreOfficeWriterBug.pngOwen,

It's difficult to show the presence of non-breaking spaces on text pasted into this website's questions & comments. I've only just realised that files can be attached. I've tried to attach attached a screenshot of LibreOffice Writer using a small file containing just one paragraph as an example of this problem, but it says that my karma needs to be > 3! What nonsense: I don't know how to raise my karma & I've no intention of wasting my time finding out!paragraph.

I think there is a bug in the way that non-breaking space characters cause arbitrary line feeds on very long lines. If they worked correctly, then offending paragraphs would only be on one line rather than multiple lines.
