Continuous Spaces are getting replaced to single spaces in Text



Multiple spaces are added to a text input (that is, continuous spaces in between strings). On clicking the Save button to save the text, the spaces are truncated to a single space and saved to the Clipboard.

For example, 

'ABCDEF         23' is saved as 'ABCDEF 23'.

As a result, the value sent to the API is incorrect and invalid results display.
