Spaces between all characters when opining HTML

Like Atom, and would like to use it for HTML editing, but when I open an HTML file (no matter which file), every single character has a space between it.

I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s not like it’s some weird sort of visual formatting - there are literal space characters between all the others.

Any ideas how to fix this?

No one has any suggestions on this?

Have you tried re-installing atom?

Yes. No effect.

I’m sorry, I don’t think I can help because I don’t have much knowledge about these types of things… Hope you find a solution!

Still have this problem.

Whenever I open an HTML file from Windows, an extra space character is inserted between each and every other character/entity in the file.

This does not happen when I copy and paste from Notepad++, Notepad, or even Word.

I’ve tried re-installing Atom twice now, but nothing has changed.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sounds like an encoding problem. What is the file encoded as?
