Space after “if”

I seem to be literally unable to type a space after ␣if . I can type a nonbreaking space with , but not a regular space with just . Is this a preference or option somewhere? I have really missed FoldingText, and I’m glad to have it back!

Edit: Also, I can’t use ⇥␣ in order to type a space. Whatever I do, I have to type some other non-whitespace character followed by a and then ←⌫ over the unwanted character.

What happens if you type the text elsewhere and paste into FT? Does it display as expected?
