Paste as plain text adds unwanted spaces (3 posts)

    This is how text looks in the paste as plain text box

    Text line 1
    Text line 2
    Text line 3
    Text line 4

    This is how it looks after I paste it

    Text line 1

    Text line 2

    Text line 3

    Text line 4

    I can't figure out why it does this. If I paste a lot of content its very time consuming to delete all the extra spaces.

    Did you ever figure this out? I just upgraded wordpress and now my text comes in double spaced.

    Also, I can't figure out how to post a question.
    Please let me know if you figure out the spacing issue.
    Thank you.

    It depends where the text is copied from. In some cases it contains some HTML that may have paragraphs and other tags.

    Maybe try to paste it in the Text editor, then switch to the Visual. Or paste it first in something like Notepad, then copy again and paste in the Visual editor.
