      This is an excellent suggestion, but it’s surprisingly difficult to cover the general case in practice.

      When we tackle this feature, it will likely involve a series of iterative refinements, and each improvement will be involve a good quantity of blood, sweat, tears and research.

    • Clean up extra spaces and line breaks.

      Add support for removing multiple spaces and line breaks. Try cleaning this: http://bit.ly/92aJmu

        This is a very generally worded request. Can anyone come up with a slightly more specific description of the requested feature? How can linebreaks be “cleaned up” when the source text doesn’t obey a convention like format-flowed, for example?

        This feature request may need to be broken up into multiple more specific points. Feedback is welcome and very much appreciated!

      • Add a switch for spacing around em-dashes

        Add a togglable option on the page to enable/disable the insertion of spaces around em-dashes

          As it stands, the code currently replaces sequences of two dashes with a single em dash, context notwithstanding; so text like this:

          Em dashes don’t take spaces either side—they’re like this.

          …would be converted to..:

          Em dashes don’t take spaces either side—they’re like this.

          …but text like this..:

          Em dashes don’t take spaces either side — they’re like this.

          …gets turned into..:

          Em dashes don’t take spaces either side — they’re like this.

          This is arguably a good idea, since it will respect whatever convention – correct or not – the user decides to follow. However, it will also dramatically mangle odd situations like this:

          -——————————————————————————
          | I am boxed text! That’s like boxed wine, but cooler. |
          -——————————————————————————

          …which becomes this kind of horrorshow..:

          ———————————————————————————-
          | I am boxed text! That’s like boxed wine, but cooler. |
          ———————————————————————————-

          …and pidgin ASCII Morse code..:

          - .— .- ……
