hi again,

i had a look at the content.xml file in each case.

with org-export-preserve-breaks disabled, whitespace is exported (correctly) like so:

<text:line-break/>
 <text:s text:c="5"/>text here indented 5 spaces.<text:line-break/>

with the option enabled, the the spaces are directly transferred to the file:

<text:line-break/>     text printed after 5 spaces, which are not properly preserved in the org file.<text:line-break/>

regards,
m
