When I hit delete it removes a few spaces back.

In the workspace I'm trying to hit hackspace but for some reason it is not aligned to delete the end of line it deletes a couple caracters back at a time. Any idea why?

I've seen that happen on "overflow" lines .. where the line is longer than the window is wide, so it folds around. Often this will be a long string.

It's a bug, but you can get around it if you break up the string into smaller pieces that are joined by concatenation, and that way the pieces can be on separate lines.

And if you want to report the bug directly to the staff, see the Support page.
