That's weird.  Native support allows for it.  Just tried and could type my name with a space without issue.  Sorry

It allows me to do it.  I drag the Text&Image box onto the sheet.  Clicked inside of it and was able to type away with spaces in the sentence.

I think the poster is referring to "extra spaces".  That is, more than one.  My experience of QS is that it always throws away extra spaces.  QV does that in some cases as well, but you could work around it with "Repeat(chr(160),10)" but that trick doesn't work with QS.

Hi Rob,

CHR(160) works as a leading character in Qlik Sense - I use it always in QlikSense P&L straight table views where i have to create indents and it works. I have never used it in the middle of text string, but i would expect it to work in similar way.

What about "verbatim" variable. Isn't it linked somehow?

Thanks all you reply..

but It's not working using chr()..not sure about use of "verbatim" variable.

I think Verbatim can be set for scripts only..


my requirement like:          Anil              Jena

now result: Anil Jena

what if you cheat and create a measure with say Repeat('__',20) and use a white color of it? Just like on my screenshots?
