For example, I indent C++ files with 2 spaces, but when I reach 8 spaces I replace them with one tab of 8 chars (tab_size=8). I cannot find an "indentation_size" option or something similar to "tab_size" that represent the indentation level in spaces and instead of tabs.
I think that there are some options missing here (or that I didn't find):
- indentation_size (integer): number of spaces to use for indent code, which is not the same as "tab_size"
- compress_spaces_with_tabs_on_indentation (boolean): to specify that spaces should be converted to tabs when you reach a certain level of indentation (e.g. 8 spaces compressed to 1 tab if tab_size=8)
