    For a couple of days now, I think, the way that spacebar works while typing a post has changed for me. I don't know if it is just this forum, or if it is server side or what. I don't have this issue with other sites.
    What happens is I type a word, I press spacebar and nothing happens. As soon as I start typing the next letter, then the space between them appears.It's so freaking annoying and I can't even double space after a fullstop unless I press space several times.
    What is going on? Is it an option, a server, it's driving me crazy.

    Googling, I was only able to find posts related to a problem like this, but localized to Word. There, if there's an invisible section break right after the cursor, exactly what you described happens.

    Oh well. I even restarted the PC, nothing changed.
    I remember having this issue before, years ago, but not what was the cause or how I solved it.

    that would be local side, not server. Is it really limited to hardware heaven?
