Spaces going missing[edit]

Offer: $200 CAD
Fixed itself
When one copies and pastes within mediawiki with w:en:WP:WikEd on spaces go missing. Would be great to see this fixed. Spaces go missing when "[[" are flushed against the left side of the edit box. They also go missing when <ref> is flushed with the right side of the edit box. As part of the translation project am copy and pasting text for the translators and the WikEd colors are exceedingly important to help them work around the text. It only happens when WikEd is on. Firefox dose not cause the problem but I am also unable to get across the coloring of the markup.

Copy of text
Paste of text and the space goes missing

That is a weird problem, at first I couldn't reproduce it but my Chrome window was maximized. I could only reproduce with the window "floating". Then, if I drag the right edge of the entire Chrome frame one way or the other (which changes the size of the workspace and moves the "[[" off of the left window wall) the problem goes away. Good luck finding a real answer. Ian Furst (talk) 23:44, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes if it is off the left wall it does not happen. When moving entire pages of text though this is not really a solution. I have asked the WikEd person if they can build a solution :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:38, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

This is actually an already known bug in Chrome, please see Chrome bug 318925. It is not specific to wikEd, it also affects CodeEditor and VisualEditor. Please feel free to comment on their bug tracker or "star" that bug. Cacycle (talk) 14:56, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
