Use this action to trim the whitespace (such as spaces, returns, or tabs) from the start and end of a string. For example, the phrase
Quick brown fox has whitespace after the last word—this would be trimmed. While the phrase `
Quick brown fox `, which has whitespace before, after, and in the middle, would just have the beginning and ending whitespace removed.
Spaces in the middle of a phrase are unaffected.
|quick brown fox||quick brown fox|
|Quick brown fox||Quick brown fox|
|QUICK BROWN FOX||QUICK BROWN FOX|
|Quick! Brown, fox!||Quick! Brown, fox!|
