Description Pedro 2013-03-05 10:24:56 UTC
When you do a Find & Replace and the goal is to remove a word (e.g. in the sentence "The Man was hit by the falling piano" replace "the" with nothing) some double spaces may result (in the example the output is "Man was hit by  falling piano".

It would be a nice addition if the space before the removed word (if exists) is removed as well.
