Protected spaces in German texts like z. B./ u.a

Good evening

I’m working with a Spanish keyboard and always when I write German text’s where a protected space (geschütztes Leerzeichen) has to be, the program recognize that something is wrong.
Maybe somebody of you knows how this problem can be solved?

Best regards


If you type z. B. with a space (no matter whether with a Spanish or German keyboard I guess), LT will notice that there should be a non-breaking space. You can use LT’s suggestion to fix that issue or turn off the rule. Wikipedia has an overview of how to enter the non-breaking space directly.
