Disappearing blanks in comments

Recently a bug appeared in the PDF-commenting.

Suppose you have "1-2" and want to change it to "1 and 2". The way that used to work was this: select the dash and insert a comment with replace text " and " (with blanks before and after). And it worked - importing and applying it in Indesign resulted "1 and 2", as expected.  But now those blanks disappear as soon as posting the comment in Acrobat (and it does the same in Acrobat Reader too), so the end result is "1and2", which is definitely wrong!

And if you have to correct "twowords", put the insertion point between o and w, comment with inserting text, type a blank and post the comment... at least that's how worked in good old days. Now the "Post" button is greyed out if in the comment there's just a blank.

Please correct this bug.

Thank you.

Mabe, you should log a bug with uservoice: acrobat.uservoice.com. But be careful, your problem description is difficult to understand. You should start with the workflow. Not everyone here uses InDesign.

Thank you for the tip, I'll report the bug at uservoice.

But it's very easy to replicate this problem in Acrobat or Reader: try to post a comment that contains only a blank space and the program won't let you... And until the last update it did.

After the recent update, Acrobat accepts blank spaces in comments, which is very good news.
The bad news is that comments containing just a blank space are incorrectly imported back in Indesign (see image).
