Consider automatic removing of leading spaces when paragraph is made centered or right-aligned.

I don't think it's a good idea to delete user input without warning. There may be circumstances where spaces are desired and shouldn't removed.

Adding needsUXEval keyword.
I suggest to close this as wontfix.

While I agree with Thomas the proposal is exactly how Microsoft Word works. Leading and trailing white-spaces are removed automatically (undo returns to the old alignment with white-spaces). We should check other tools if there is a pattern. And if not, close this ticket as WONTFIX.

No further input so closing as WF. Could be a nice extension that trims text.
