In setting up my own preferences, I've modified my Base settings to expand tabs to spaces, but clearly in Makefiles, this has to be reversed. According to this page, http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/2/indentation.html, there are two User places for putting User settings. But at least in build 2059, they file-type specific version does not work.
From that page:
Settings files are consulted in this order:
Packages/Default/Base File (<platform>).sublime-settings
but when I place the following in Packages/User/Makefile.sublime-settings, the settings are never used:
- Code: Select all
// The number of spaces a tab is considered equal to
// Set to true to insert spaces when tab is pressed
Maybe I'm doing something fundamentally wrong.
