Scriv2 Compile had a function (in Transformations?) that took out multiple spaces between words. In Scriv3, after considerable head-scratching, I found that one can 'edit' a compile format, which shows some of the former compile functions. There is no space removal option I can see. What am I missing?

There's a command in the editor to do this now:

Edit > Text tidying > Replace Multiple Spaces with Single Spaces

That submenu also has commands to remove unwanted blank lines and so on.

FWIW, Convert Markdown and Convert MultiMarkdown remove multiple spaces during compile.
