Figma ignores spaces while copying and pasting from MS Word document

Hi, I’m having trouble pasting texts from MS Word document into Figma. When I copy and paste text from Word, Figma ignores the spaces between the words and stick the words together. So I have to copy the Word-text into an text-editor and then I can paste it in Figma. Is there any solution without this workaround?
Thank you for every idea and reply!

Also experiencing this issue, would say it began last week (around February 8). I am on a PC, primarily copy and paste from MS Word, and use Figma in a Chrome browser.

Should of tried this right away: If you copy and paste your content from MS Word into Notepad first, then into Figma, it won’t remove spaces. So it’s a direct-from-Word to Figma issue.

Same issue here that occur since I changed my OS from German to Englisch.
