Issue:

When creating a status report in the modern UX and previewing the PDF version, certain characters are either removed or changed.  We have noticed it with the following so far:
-an apostrophe is removed (ex. Let's becomes Lets)
-a double quote becomes a single quote (ex. "double quotes" becomes 'double quotes')
-if \n is entered it is removed

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Create a project > status report in either the modern or classic UI

2. In a field of data type string, enter the following:

Let's help each other
to "lift" each other up.
Be prepared\n to help.

3. Review the text from the modern UI and/or Preview mode.

Expected:
The modern UI > Project > Status report fields display exactly what is entered:

Let's help each other
to "lift" each other up.
Be prepared\n to help.

Actual:
The modern UI > Project > Status report fields removes/converts the above entry as:

Lets help each other <---apostrophe is removed
to 'lift' each other up. <---double quotes converted to single quote
Be prepared to help. <----\n is removed
