"Link Tool" in Text Editor Automatically Removes Symbols

Recommended Posts

Let us initiate an experiment that should demonstrate the problem at hand.


When I try linking a word, I highlight the word and then use the "Link" button in the text editor. Thus:




Now let us try the same with Fish & Chips.

Here's some material evidence:

Things remain incredibly broken. Allow me to showcase:


"Tay  plz."
When looking at this sentence, the keen eye may notice there's not one, but two spaces between the 'y' and the 'p'. However, this is too much for the Link Tool to handle.

When I try to link "Tay  plz.", it becomes "Tay  plz."
The same monstrosity does not morph into existence were I to instead opt for "Tay plz." without the troublesome fiend that is the extra space. Look: "Tay plz."


Tay plz.
