Description

Currently it is not properly visible if a start/end space or single space is present, when you are within the editor. It would be great if that position is highlighted within the editor

Hi @psmits1568,

This should probably be implemented upstream in GlotPress itself, rather than a translate.WordPress.org-specific thing.

It looks like they've got an open issue for this though:

Hi Dion,

If you are in the editor and use GlotDict, you get a warning for the missing blank. But it would be great if you could see that before saving your suggestion. Showing it in the preview would already help, but in my opinion if it is also shown within the editor in the original it would even be better

Replying to psmits1567:

I agree.

However, the ticket asked for It would be great if that position is highlighted within the editor which is the Upstream GlotPress ticket - That's why I closed it in favour of that.

Notably though.. There's two areas where we handle leading/trailing new lines but NOT leading/trailing SPACES

Adding support for spaces to both of those isn't out of the question at all, but that wasn't what was originally proposed in this ticket.

Issue one is resolved, currently in single lines if a blanc is present before or after, then it is highlighted
