Issues with copying post source from revision history
When I try to copy and paste text out of a revision history for a question or answer, I notice that:
- Blank lines are not preserved
- If I copy the entire text of a revision, the entire thing will also be indented by four spaces on each line, and have two blank lines added on each end. (Skipping even a single character at either the beginning or end seems to avoid this.)
(This caused problems for me lately, as I attempted to use a revision history to create a Git backup of changes to a post for my personal records.)
