VisualEditor: adding spaces?
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Possibly the most vanilla dirty diff ever, if it is a dirty diff - in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Painted_Bird&diff=563388980&oldid=544897993 the VE has added an extra space (before "novel").


Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

bzimport set Reference to bz51024.

Other examples:

In this diff, the second whitespace was intended, but the first one wasn't:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=94475506

In the subsequent edit, the user tried to remove the space that was inserted by VE, and not only was he not able to remove it, but VE actually added /another/ space:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=94475570&oldid=94475506

I notice that in these 2 cases, as well as in the case reported in comment 1, there's an adjacent colon. Dunno if it's related.

It might be worth noting that spaces keep being added each time you edit an article with this bug (some examples here: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:%C3%89diteurVisuel/Avis#Insertion_d.27une_espace_suppl.C3.A9mentaire_.C3.A0_chaque_.C3.A9dition , it seems related to the colon), and that some of them are not even real whitespaces.

This seems to be bug 48570
