Ability to store binary data in variables and pass them in Web Request action
Currently when trying to put binary data (ex. retrieved using SharePoint API binary data of the file from library) in a text variable or to use directly in "Web Request" action some information is lost (I suppose Nintex is not supporting null bits [0x00] and replaces them with spaces [0x20] or cuts them off). Because of that, when trying to create a new file in a different library or when trying to call Nintex O365 REST API to create a workflow, the results are incorrect - the created file is corrupted and API returns errors.
It would be really nice to have full support for binary data in text variables and "Web Request" action. Maybe a new type of variable must be added - "binary"?

I think the reason is that when storing the binary data to a variable or passing it using "Web Request" action Nintex is cutting-off all null bits (0x00) replacing them with spaces (0x20) or just removing them.
