Hi, working with twenty seventeen.

The backend interface has changed, and since then pasting from Word doesn't work well. Some spaces between words disappear.

Hi there

This new block editor was introduced in WordPress 5.0. Pasting from Word should actually work better than before.

Is it possible that you could upload that Word document here so we can test this?

This is being tracked on GitHub in 11012. @RonnieK If you are able to provide the text you are testing, that would be great. Also any operation system, browser, and Word information such as versions is very helpful.

Thanks! I'll upload the original Word document.
Been doing a lot of this type of work in the past few days and the problem started only today.
