Re: Text Box - Auto removal of extra space

Hi @MarkTurkenburg 


I did that using black magic 😄

 

Instead of using spaces, I use the "invisible character". 
Copy the character between the double quotes and paste it instead of a space character in your text. "⠀"

 

Let me know if you encounter any issues.

Of course - yes Black Magic!

 

It makes sense but I can't get it to work @einas.ibrahim 

 

I have copied the space between the 2 quotes down the bottom but when I paste into the sentences above there is no space added

 

Is this the same process you use?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

Hey @MarkTurkenburg 

 

What do you mean by “copied the space .... down the bottom”?

 

What I literally did in the text box I sent you is

  • copy the invisible character (ctrl + C)
  • Write “Column 1“ then pasted ( ctrl + V) multiple times.
  • Write “Column 2”

Hi @einas.ibrahim 

 

I meant "down the bottom" of my screen shot - I had " " & was copying the space between the 2 quotes

 

But it doesn't work for me. I copy the character but when I paste there is no invisible character that is pasted

@MarkTurkenburg 

I don't know what to tell you. I'm not aware of any restrictions. I can even use it here in the post.

Take a look at this post which I think might help.

Thanks @rob_marshall  & @einas.ibrahim 

 

For me I was only able to get it to work by copying the 'Invisible Character' from the URL below & pasting into the Text Box on the Dashboard. Not sure why there was a difference between @einas.ibrahim & my result when copying the blank space between 2 quotes but possibly a software issue

In any case this worked for me

 

Appreciate your help
