Text issues in ticket description

I'm new here to Lighthouse, but I seem to have an issue whenever pasting bodies of text to the ticket comment field. On many - but not all - occasions, I find the text looks like a code block and doesn't naturally break like a normal body of text. The result is a block of text that flows to the right 3-4 pages wide, and is formatted in Monaco font.

What am I doing wrong, and what can I do to fix this problem?

    Lighthouse uses Markdown for text formatting. If you have a number of consecutive lines with tabs or spaces in front of them they are treated as code blocks.

    One note, I looked for this in the text format page you refer to, but didn't find anything there. Maybe I missed it? If not, I wonder if it might be helpful to post an example of this so users are aware? Just a suggestion.

    By the way, I'm really liking LightHouseApp so far. Thanks for the hard work!

    Preformatted Code Blocks are the area of the documentation that I meant to bring to your attention.

    This is preformatted code block.
    This is preformatted code block line 2.
