Description Ulrich Windl 2015-09-08 13:40:06 UTC
When replacing a space with a non-breaking space while recording changes, there still is a line wrap at the non-breaking space. Only after the changes (delete space, add non-breaking space) are accepted, the line is no longer wrapped at the non-breaking space.
Effectively this means you cannot preview the effect of the non-breaking space.

1. Inserted dummy text with dt + f3.
2. Selected the space between at & night in lines 1 & 2.
4. Edit - Track changes - Record changes (Ctrl+Shift+E)
5. Ctrl+Shift+Space to replace the regular space

Confirmed line breaking staying the same.
