### Will my coins be fully private after mixing with Wasabi?

This depends on how you handle your outputs after the coinjoin. There are some ways how you can unintentionally undo the mixing by being careless. For example, if you make a 1.8 BTC transaction into Wasabi, do the coinjoin, and then make one single outgoing transaction of 1.8 BTC, a third party observer can reasonably assume that both transactions belong to one single entity, due to both amounts being virtually the same even though if they have been through a coinjoin. In this scenario, Wasabi will barely make any improvement to your privacy, it still have a protective effect against unsophisticated observers.

Wow, good catch :)
I think there are also extra spaces in other lines' endings. Is this something that should be corrected, can it cause troubles somewhere down the road with formatting etc?

It doesn’t really matter, but it's better practice not to have the spaces
