This is a strange and unexpected "feature" in the latest Libreoffice

This is not like at the end of a line where excess spaces are still
there just not seen, and the corresponding number of spaces can be
deleted - this is different, where additional spaces are simply
IGNORED!
"How bizzarre!" as they say :)
Anyone know how to revert this "fantastic" new feature?
:D

There is an option: Tools / AutoCorrect / AutoCorrect Options ... / Options / Ignore double spaces. Is it enabled? It does not work for me but disabling it might work for you.

I also have a vague recollection of HTML editors not allowing multiple spaces. I do not know if this applies to LibreOffice Writer.

Kind regards,
