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.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a text input.
  2. Enter a string containing multiple spaces (that is, continuous spaces). Check the resultant value stored in the property (in the Clipboard). The spaces are truncated to a single space.

Root Cause

A third-party product issue: Default browser behavior.
