Tabs always converted to spaces when loading file

Post by vha »

Using v10.40 b1

When loading a file that contains spaces, these are always converted to spaces when the file is loaded (although I have the option 'convert tabs to spaces before saving' unchecked)

This is very dangerous as it corrupts e.g. makefiles that are using gcc

In "Options -> Tabs and spaces" you should make sure the option "Preserve tab characters" is checked. It is set by default, so I'm guessing you've unchecked it at some point... :)
