I’m a type nerd—I can’t find an example of this shortcut being used for nonbreaking spaces anywhere. More frequently, in every industry standard text entry system I was able to research, it’s something like
Ctrl + Space specifically because typing in all caps using Shift causes unexpected results with nonbreaking spaces. The only example I have ever encountered, or was able to encounter after a few hours’ research, exists in Webflow.
Are you able to provide an example of a text editor where
Shift + Space is a shortcut for any type of space? I wasn’t able to find anything on the mozilla developer resource you provided.
Either way, the non-breaking space being ~double the width of a standard space means that it can’t be used regularly anyway. edit: this is probably an issue with my uploaded font—perhaps Webflow is selecting the fixed width non-breaking space glyph? Maybe my feature request would be to not select that one, or give us an option to disable this shortcut! I do most of my typing in Webflow, and I shudder to think how many non-breaking spaces are out there in my copy waiting for the wrong screen size to look ugly…
