TinyMCE - preventing copying html spacers


In Episerver 11, is there a way to prevent TinyMCE from copying in html spacers?   I had plain text in notepad, and tried to copy the text into the wysiwyg editor but it also added   html spacers in between most of the words even when there was one space between them.     I don't recall it doing that before, but just noticed.     Had a client that was wondering why the content was not stretching to the entire width then noticed the issue.

Does it only happen with specific browsers or does it happen no matter what browser you are editing from? And is it a process of simply copying a paragraph from notepad and pasting into the editor?

It is how tinymce works. I will report a bug for it to EPiServer/Optimizely TinyMCE.
If you cannot wait for the fix from CMS UI, you can try the suggestions from here
