FOR THE LOVE OF GOD can someone stop DDO from automatically adding double spaces to my argument everytime I click "view preview"????

I cannot stand having to manually backspace every added space every single time I post an argument (which I've been doing a lot lately)

Is it because I copy & paste from OpenOffice? But the extra spaces don't show up until I click preview

Please help raise money for a Christmas gift for airmax (although he is Jewish, as YYW pointed out). He is in desperate need of a new laptop, and he has done so much for this site; he certainly deserves one. :)

I've had this happen a few times tho I'm not sure what causes it. Basically, you have to hold off from previewing until you're ready to submit.

It happens regularly when using the "insert from Word" feature in Rich Text mode. It's been a feature of the site for five years. I try to complain once or twice a year.

There is a horrid workaround. Before copying the text, change all the carriage returns to a string like "xx". Then post, and go through manually and change all the xx strings back to carriage returns. I've done it a few times in extreme desperation.

It's part of a longstanding recognition of the need to build character in computer users.

What's carriage return? Enter?
