Libreoffice test - Dr Owain Kenway

Friday, Jun 17

I tried editing posts in Libreoffice (and saving as plain text) so that I could use the spell checker and it broke the YAML front matter.

Looking at the git diff, it reproducibly inserts some control characters at the start of the document:

These characters are non-printing and therefore you have to get your editor to display them before you can remove them.

This is quite an annoying feature!
