Ignore whitespace while updating page through API

Edited

I recently switched to Conflunce Cloud and now when I update page through API all whitespaces that exist in storage representation I am sending to Confluence are preserved in the page.

 

Here's an example. I send this page content through API:

 

<p>
word1
word2
word3
</p>
<p>word3<ac:structured-macro ac:name="anchor" ac:schema-version="1"><ac:parameter ac:name="">myanchor</ac:parameter></ac:structured-macro>word4</p>

I expect content inside <p> block to be treated as HTML, so all whitespace formatting should be collapsed. This is the content I expect to see on the page:

word1 word2 word3
word3word4

But all whitespaces are preserved and this is what I get:

It added spaces before word1, word2, word3 and newlines after them. It also added a space on the place of invisible anchor macro.

This is very tedious to clean up while preparing the page content to send. Is it possible to turn off such strange whitespace behavior? I never had such problem when working with Confluence Server.
