spaces dropped when pasting

  • There are times when I need to past a bunch of lines of code which contain blank lines with spaces. When I paste into Notepad++, all spaces are dropped from any blank lines. How do I configure Notepad++ to retain the blank lines and spaces?

    Afaik, there is no setting to drop spaces but what I assume what happened is
    that some sort of unicode whitespaces can’t be shown correctly.
    Do you have some data to share to investigate it.

    By the way, which operating system and notepad++ version do you use? (debug->info in ? menu)


  • Oh wow … you are right.
    It is not notepad++
    It is linux vi editing program is not copying the spaces.
