Suddenly I have some text fields where I can’t type spaces. If I do they just don’t appear. I can insert them AFTER I’ve typed though, but not WHILE typing. Very strange and very frustrating.
Thanks for reaching out! This sounds like an odd behavior
:/ Can you give us a share link to your website and - ideally - make a GIF with what is not working for you? Or maybe make a quick video with audio feedback over what you’re doing and what is not working for you. That would help a lot!
I’ll be standing by for your response!
Hi thanks for your reply.
My ongoing problem is that I can’t share links due to NDA. Besides that I work to extremely tight deadlines and have no time for making videos etc right now. I can just about afford to quickly post on the forum. I will come back when I have time.
Same happened here, but not always. After I then deselect the paragraph/text block and reselect it, I can add the spaces where needed.
Possible linked update that may have caused this change: https://webflow.com/feature/rich-text-editor-tweaks
Same here! It’s not happening just with the rich text but everything.
I just ran into this same problem with a new site I created today. I too believe it is linked to the rich text editor tweak although I am not using a rich text box. I received a pop up saying something about typing shift + space for consecutive spaces even though I am typing a single space.
Refreshing my browser helped solve the issue for me at least for now.
@bart Now I am trying to use the rich text block and I can not type any spaces and the refresh isn’t effective because I lose my changes.
Here is a gif of this issue. Basically every time you see the red line pop up where no space appears, I actually did type the space. When I go back and type the space again at the spot that it was omitted I am able to type it. You also see the warning message pop up.
The update affected all typographic nodes. Based on the screencap it looks like the caret is either just before or just after a space when it’s being ignored, but works when it’s not adjacent to a space.
We have a ux fix that addresses this, that should make it out today, where hitting spacebar for a regular space (with the caret before a space or non-breaking space) will behave similarly to pressing the right arrow, and make the writing experience a little more natural.
I’ll post back here when the fix is live.
Seems to behave more natural
