Editor counts tab character as one column

Editor counts tab character as one column

Postby sylar on Sun Apr 10, 2011 3:04 pm

The text editor counts each tab character as one column, I have my tab size set to eight spaces. Shouldn't the editor count a tab character as tab_size columns?

If you have it set to actually insert eight spaces, then it should be column 8. Otherwise, a tab is one column, and any languages that report errors with lines and columns will report the same.
