For a block of text with three lines, I'm using SplitText to split by line and I'm getting five lines out. The first and last of those are empty, and take up no space.


I only see this behaviour if the text has whitespace around it. Such as

    Here is the header; it takes up three lines.

It's annoying, since I have to filter the blank ones out before I can animate and do things like a delay depending on the line number. It could also lead to misleading line number counts.


Is this a known bug?

I just sent you an email about this with an updated file to try. Please let me know if that works better for you.

I didn't get it the email; please double-check you sent to the right address.


I also found just now that no-break spaces aren't preserved when splitting only by line. This is causing visual issues for me. Or are no-break spaces simply not supported? (Do you want this in a separate thread? I know I would if this were a bug tracker for something of mine...)

Oh, it ended up in my (Google Mail) spam box, presumably due to the zip attachment. I'll review it shortly.

Yes, much better; thanks. Will this make it into mainline?
