Well there's no problem with the hyphens and other chars, just with the spaces. The spaces are not right. It's like you type a Courier New space (which is a proportional font) and you get a Arial font space instead.
In MPLAB I use Courier New but copying and pasting to editors results in font changes.
My doubt: if I copy and paste text in fontA, when could I be sure the font is going to be maintained in the destination text?
Is it any "general" rule for copy/paste of text (RTF? or plain txt?) regarding the original and final fonts? Is it maintained, forcefully changed to a specific different font or does it depends of the font at the destination document?
