Forced line breaks within text variables introduces an unavoidable letter space
When a forced line break is inserted within text that is used for a variable, a random, unavoidable letter space is introduced into the variable text.
There are obvious workarounds, but a solution to this would be really convenient.
See attached screenshots for example.
I have a situation where one brand of this document sells two versions of the same model.
So "ProductVariable" is defined as "ProductA" in one doc, and "ProductA and ProductB" in another doc.
Is there a way to set it so it *may* break across a line?
(I've worked around it by editing the text before the variable - which introduces an inconsistency between this and other related documents...and only addresses places where we catch the bad line breaks.)
This seems to be related to the text variable "missing space" bug. In a running head, for example, the forced returns are not replaced by spaces on the first instance, but the space IS created for subsequent instances.

This is very troublesome for me too. Also I find it inconsistent, sometimes the soft return + space =2 spaces, some times it is only one space ( like it should be the soft return should not translate not a space)- This difference can happen within the same chapter and when this happens I have to abandon this function all together and use old fashioned section starts.

This seems like a bug that would be easy to fix.

Please correct this bug. We do a lot of books and the workarounds make our work slow and unproductive. Thank you.
Good to know. Thanks.
