When typing in RTL language when tracking changes is ON but showing changes is OFF, sometimes pressing the spacebar adds the space charachter but fails to advance the carret foreward. This means that instead of
זה משפט בעברית
followed by two spaces.
This does not happen always, but it is really annoying when it does. It happens in long documents with many tracked changes more often than in small ones, but it can happen anywhere.
A workaround for this is. typing. really. really. slowly.
I use ubuntu 20.04.
Thanks for reporting this issue.
So, which are the steps?
1. Open writer
2. Enable tracking changes
3. Type זה משפט בעברית
4. Disable tracking changes? accept changes ?
1. Open a long document with many unaccepted changes (to maximise the chances of reproduction).
2. Make sure that tracking changes is ENABLED, but viewing changes is DISABLED.
3. Type any Hebrew sentence quickly.
On many occassions, you should find out that the spaces were not registered in time and are added at the end of the sentence.

Yotam: now that you know how to bibisect, maybe you could investigate, if this is a regression. You can quickly test with a selection of older versions by using appimages: https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/
There have certainly been big internal renovations to change tracking code in the recent years.

Would you be willing to attach such a document, and given more exact reproduction instruction instructions based on it?
This is a client's document - not exactly confidential, but not one I want on google results either. I'll mail it to you.

I got the file from Yotam and checked with:
Version: 22.214.171.124 / LibreOffice Community

and could not reproduce the bug. Yotam wrote me:

At the moment no one is know to be able to reproduce this issue, so I am closing it as WORKSFORME. Yotam, if you do see this again, please reopen.
