Spaces between words deleted

For some reason sometimes MM14 is deleting spaces between words in text notes.

I don't understand why, but sometimes, when I save a note, it would happen, and as a result, I would lose all spaces between words in ALL the notes in the map.

When it happens, a sentence such as "This is crucial subject" would become "Thisiscrucialsubject". Even if I put spaces again, it will re-omit them and many times the only solution is closing and re-opening the map.

Any ideas how to resolve this? As you can imagine, this could be very frustrating.

You may get a clue by doing this:

  1. Copy a map file that is okay and one that is not.
  2. Change their file type to .zip
  3. Extract
  4. Open the document.xml file (this has all the map data in it)
  5. Search for a unique word that is in a Note.
  6. Inspect and compare the "spaces". You may need to go to an ASCII view to spot the difference.
If you copy and pasted text from other applications you have "spaces" which MindManager is unhappy about.

Hi Andrew,
I have checked that within a certain file. If I open the XML in IE 11 I get the sentence "makeeveryoneeqaul" in one word. when I open it in ASCII editor, I get the following:


As you can see the "preview" is OK, but withing the HTML, Mindmanager is using which omits the spaces. for example - here is a correct one:

PreviewPlainText="(big)data analysis services.">
(big)data analysis services.

Further exploration, discovered that it may happen in some text notes and in some it may be OK, within the same file .
It may also happen in Hebrew (RTL) as well as in English.
It might be that if I switch to Hebrew, it would get "jammed" due to the RTL, but many times I use Hebrew and it is OK - as shown bellow:

PreviewPlainText="איך לנצל את המידע הקיים לצורך סקרים"> איך לנצל את המידע הקיים לצורך סקרים

The two main question are: why does it suddenly happen and how to fix it.

(All texts are from the same file).
