#47525 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Extra spaces added when pasting large chunks of text into blocks

It seems that whenever I paste large chunks of text into a block (e.g. when cross-posting a blog post from one website to another), a load of extra spaces get added!


It takes ages to go through the text removing the unwanted additional spaces.

Please fix!

Thanks! :)
