Problem with non-breaking spaces

Folding Text 2.1.1 doesn’t write non-breaking spaces. They are essential in French punctuation and in other situations. If I type a non-breaking space (Alt+Space Bar) it doesn’t write it. For instance, in French you must type a non-breaking space before a colon, an exclamation mark, a question mark, etc.

« Où est l’espace insécable ? »
“Where is the non-breaking space?”

If I write the sentence, copy and paste it in BBEdit in “Show Invisibles” mode, I notice that the non-breaking space is not before the colon despite the fact I typed it.

Very annoying to write French and to use the software as the main text editor.


Thank you for writing in. Yes, this is a problem. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but the Codemirror editing component we’re using should handle this ok.

I’ve created an issue about this here.


Hi! This issue should be fixed in the new dev release. Check it out:
