I can't seem to reproduce this. Can you provide exact detailed steps?
This area of the product has not changed (at least on purpose) so I suspect it must be some specific step you are doing that is triggering this behaviour. The product does have (and always has had) the ability to merge elements when it makes sense to do so, but for reusable components it should not be doing that. Elements are generally only merged together when you ask the product to do that (usually by using the backspace key) but you cannot do that for reusable components, so I'm not sure what is occurring for you.
In my case the steps are:
1. create a new topic, give it a title and save it
2. inside a
add the text: My favorite colors are red, blue, and green.
3. select the text “red,”
4. from the Reuse menu select “Create Reusable Component” provide a filename and save it
5. select the text “blue,”
6. from the Reuse menu select “Create Reusable Component” provide a filename and save it
In my case it does not matter if I do this in Tags On or Normal view. Sometimes there are subtle differences between the two because you can make slightly different selections in Tags On view, but in this case we are just dealing with text so I think there should be no difference.
