Batch Task API - Empty IText Fields

Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking questions like this, but I'm currently developing plugins using the Batch Task API. Right now, I am running into a bit of a bug and I'm pretty sure it has to do with how Trados Studio handles empty IText items.

Within the UI, I know it is more than possible to have an empty source or target block, but under the hood, is it possible to have a blank IText item or does Trados Studio just prune it out?

Trados won't remove empty IText objects by default.
I believe you would have to do that yourself if that is your goal.
