Extra spaces added to markdown with rich text pasted

Not sure if this is intentional / necessary for Markdown related reasons, but just noticed when I pasted some rich text into the composer, strings with formatting (bold / italic) seem to have extra spaces inserted before and after the * or ** tags.

See example here e.g. the URL in the quoted text or the bolded **SPRING2019** near the bottom.

The quoted text above was copied from a web page; the below “sale” text copied from an email. Not sure if this always happens but at least two sources where I’m seeing it.


This bug has existed for quite a while @vinothkannans I’ve noticed it many times.
