Coping texts in Paperpile viewer negatively affects DeepL translation

Hi.
When we copy a text in Paperpile viewer, line breaks are automatically removed. I think this is a great feature.
However, the lack of space after removing a line break has a bad effect on the translation at DeepL.

e.g.
Original:

In this figure, stricter and average applicable ranges de-
scribed in Section 4.2 are plotted as solid and dashed lines.
It is clear from this figure that the proposed method can
keep factors near the original tempo compared to naive DJ
mixing in a transition.

There are two problems.

  1. … lines.It …
    In DeepL, sentences following a comma are not translated for some reason(I Don’t know). I want a comma followed by a space intentionally.

  2. … method cankeep factors …
    If the Author does not include spaces at the end of a sentence, deleting a line break will cause the words to be combined.
    It helps me that Paperpile inserts whitespace, if not whitespace at the end of a sentence.

Thanks for the request, Tatsuya. I’m not sure we are in a position to offer this level of customization for copy/pasting, but I’ve added the idea to our internal tracker nonetheless. Please don’t hesitate to share any other feedback or questions you may have.
