Can I turn off this feature? In numerous instances I would like to be the one to add or not add space to the text I am making. This only happens when cutting and pasting. For instance, I have an index that has page numbers listed with only a comma separating the numbers. If I copy a number then paste it after a comma, then I get this: comma, space and the pasted number. If I copy say "16" then put the cursor between 3 and 6 of "36", I get "3 16 6". A space is added to each side of the "16".
I want this to go away!
I am running CS5.5 on a Mac.
Thanks for any help.
