Spaces between words are removed in paragraph where redaction was done

After redaction is done spaces are removed between words, which are before redacted fragment.

	public void addRedactionAnnotation(Page page, Rectangle rectangle, String overlayText, String colorHex) {

		var annotation = new RedactionAnnotation(page, rectangle);
		var color = hexToColor(colorHex);

		annotation.setFillColor(color);
		annotation.setColor(Color.getBlack());
		annotation.setModified(new Date());
		annotation.setOverlayText(overlayText);
		annotation.setTextAlignment(HorizontalAlignment.Left);
		annotation.setRepeat(false);
		annotation.redact();

		page.getAnnotations().add(annotation);
	}
