Entering values in SfMaskedEdit when the cursor is on the mask

There was some problem when using SfMaskedEdit. The fact is that I use an element to enter the amount in bitcoins. Accordingly, the mask is as follows:

[0-9] * \.? [0-9] {1,8} BTC

If the user clicks on an element and the cursor goes beyond the space, then he cannot write anything until he moves the cursor to the position, at least before the space. However, if he moves the cursor to the “forbidden” position and begins to delete the content, then the behavior of the element becomes adequate, that is, the cursor moves to the nearest right character and it is deleted.

Is there a way to get an element to move the cursor and start typing when the user clicks on a position after a space?

Source code:
<maskedEdit:SfMaskedEdit x:Name="MaskedEditAmount"
                                 Mask="[0-9]*\.?[0-9]{1,8} BTC"
                                 ErrorBorderColor="#0D0D21" />
