Problem with first page of Instructable Answered

Hi,

The first page of my Instructable seems to have been corrupted and has lost all its Carriage Returns

https://www.instructables.com/id/RC-truck-robot-conversion/

Anyone have any ideas how this has happened?

Don't fancy having to keep coming back to edit it again and again.

Thanks

Quick answer is that the new text input editor needed to have the database changed and old formatting is not 100% compatible.  Conversion process seems to have plodged through and left some ibles looking "compressed" in its wake.  It seems to have hiccuped at links and some text formatting characters. 
I have a few ibles of mine that I noticed this on too. This is the new text input editor going forward so they will need to address this issue.

It would be a tremendous task to go through and review all old instructables to see if they were corrupted and try to reformat them so I do not know what plans the staff has in place.
