I've thought about this, but if that's the recommendation, then really
everyone should do this on every text file, in which case maybe it
should be a built-in process on text frame import. One problem with
double spaces is that they're hard to see, especially with a
proportional font, and a spellcheck won't pick them up either.
I also have a hard time understanding when would be the situation that
one would *want* a double space divided in the middle. In the middle of
a line, it would not be as distracting as on the front end, and an extra
space at the end of a left-justified text line is invisible.
A final thought: fully-justified text should have a space at the end of
a line or the beginning of the next, if it works analogously to the
left-justified algorithm as it exists. Now I presume it doesn't, so
you're saying that for fully-justified text, it is logical for Scribus
not to display that space, yet it is also logical with left-justified
text for Scribus to display a double space and split it in the middle at
the end of a line.
At the moment I don't anticipate sending work to a printer, but I can
imagine someone gnashing their teeth after getting a large print job
back and finding a space inadvertently at the beginning of a line
somewhere. Not the end of the world, but you can't help but think it
reflects on the quality of your work to have something like that happen.
