Math equation editor concern

I would like to include the following on a test.

 

Factor:

x^2 - 2x + 1

 

The answer is (x-1)(x-1) or (x-1)^2.  However, if a student enters (x - 1)(x - 1) it is marked wrong in Canvas.  Notice, the only difference is the inclusion of additional spaces in the student answer.  Does anyone use an add-on math editor that removes additional spaces?
