Smiley Extra Spaces
« on: February 19, 2014, 07:24:11 PM »

When I click a smiley, it adds an extra space. Is there a reason for this?

At the start of the line (which is where I like to put them) I have to delete the space to not have them look ugly!

I always thought that was so it would have a space before the smiley after a sentence/word, but I am not sure if that's the official reason.

Mouser? Do you have any info?
I tend to hit return before posting a smiley because the smileys are different heights than text and throw off the line height otherwise.

^ that's the reason
(I find it looks fine at the beginning of a sentence too)
