In a JIRA issue description, any number of sequential spaces will be collapsed into a single space.
E.g., "this sentence has 10 spaces between the first two words"
I pressed the spacebar 10 times after typing "this" in that sentence. There should be 10 spaces between "this" and "sentence" but JIRA automatically collapses them into a single space.
None of the style options seems to preserve spaces. I am using JIRA v6.4.12 and the preformatted, paragraph quote, and block quote style options all collapse spaces.
I need to preserve spaces because I often paste stack traces into issue descriptions. The spaces for formatting make stack traces much easier to read.
Is there a way to force JIRA to display spaces as-is?
