Typing a sentence while holding shift will ignore spaces

Steps to reproduce

In any note, hold down shift and type a sentence containing spaces.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Expected result

The sentence appears with letters capitalized, and spaces in between words.

Actual result

There are no spaces between the words.
In sandbox mode they appear, but in my regular notes, with all community plugins disabled, they do not appear and get swallowed somehow.

Additional information

Did you restart the app after turning off community plugins?

I can’t reproduce this.

Under hotkeys, you can filter by assigned only.

I suggest looking in your hotkeys and make sure you didn’t map Shift+space to something.

Then check your OS hotkeys too. Although in MacOS it shouldn’t be possible to map that.

Check for any apps that might control hotkeys and snippets. Like BetterTouchTool, Alfred, Espanso, and all those types of apps.

I’m sorry folks, it looks like I had a hotkey assigned to Shift + Space, so this is entirely on me, but it explains the issue entirely.
