Calendar Event Description reformats combining words

Postby terrysduncan » Sun Apr 27, 2014 12:24 am

The calendar is reformatting my description, taking spaces between words creating confusing text.

For example...

The Somewhere Stake Deseret Industries POD is located in theupper(south) parking lot of the Somewhere Stake Center and is open eachSaturday from 10am - 2pm.

Yes, that's been happening for at least a couple of years. See Losing newlines from Description field and the discussions it links to.

But even if the original text has no newlines, it is removing the space between some words like 'theupper' or 'eachSaturday'

Yes, I have noticed this same problem recently. Let's hope it can be fixed a.s.a.p.

As noted above, combining words has been fixed, but it may be only for new events.

The new line issue is addressed in the Losing newlines from Description field thread and has been going on for months. I would not expect a quick fix to that. But you can read the thread for a work-around.
