      Go to the question bank in any course. Create a new shortanswer question Add some answers, some with leading or trailing spaces, and some without. Save the question. Edit it again, and verify that all the leading or trailing whitespace was trimmed.

    Description

      If I by accident (while copying) leave spaces at the beginning/end of short question – they are not trimmed (as was earlier). This can cause hardly noticable problems

      Even if I would like to have leading spaces sometimes, I can't submit them while responding (they are trimmed there) – so no use to save them in questions answers.

      This also affects issue with giving backslash as shortanswer in CLOZE as described here https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=275299#p1186876
