I had such great success with my emoji question I thought I'd ask another question about the message editor. )>
I often work on the messages I post here in a Linux text editor, and then paste them into the message editor here. I sometimes like "to sleep on it" before posting. The next day upon rereading, I may make a lot of changes. or decide not to post it at all.
The problem with doing this is that when pasting, most of my white space disappears, and I have to reedit the message to put the white space back. I've tried both the RTF and the HTML editors, BTW the latter eats newlines also.
I just installed WINE and Windows Notepad. I had great hopes for Notepad, because it's supposed to be a RTF editor, but that didn't help either.
I'm probably missing something simple. I know most people here are WIMPs ( Windows icon mouse pushers ), but I thought I'd ask anyway. Is there's a fix for this, or does the same thing occur with Windows text editors?
