Trim trailing and leading spaces

DVX should automatically trim trailing and leading spaces in segments. This would much enhance hit precentages with regard to other CAT tools, like MemoQ and Studio, which do this, and save quite a lot of QA time. An added bonus would be having less segments in the TM as there would not be one with a trailing space and one without, for instance, all else being identical.

        To John: Wilcox:
        It would indeed, but I think the benefits would outweigh the drawbacks, especially when working with other CAT tools. An alternative would be to delete those trailing spaces in your TMs, which is possible, though it would be a real hassle.

        As pointed out on the user's list, this would need a change to the TM matching algorithm, so that if you had a segment with a trailing space in an existing TM it would still be found as an exact (or guaranteed) match.

        Not only spaces, also apostroph, quotes, square and cube signs ([sup]2[/sup] and ²), remove soft hyphens etc. All this called — PRERARE SOURCE.
        And this should be configurable - may be with set of regex or other after loading files in project.

        I also suggestged it way back in the Yahoo Group in 2015; see message #134053. Do really hope the put it into effect! Keep pushing at your end and I'll do the same.
