You'll need to expand on that. 

I have "issues" with playing with my cat, but I wouldn't expect a vet to understand what they are from that sentence.

To clarify when copied contents from email (Outlook) to Confluence (Notes) the formatting is adding extra spaces. Is there a way of fixing that?

The problem is that it seems Microsoft apps sometimes select any trailing spaces, and/or adds a line feed (space) when the text is quickly selected: double- or triple-clicked, ctrl/cmd A, etc.

If you are careful to manually select only the text you want (e.g. click at the beginning of the text, hold the shift key and click right after the period), there shouldn't be any extra spaces.

You may find it quicker to remember to hit delete after pasting if necessary.
