write in column mode add spaces for indention, instead of tabs
In my files I use tabs to indent. When I use column mode and write something the it add spaces at the beginning of the blank line and no tabs. Can this be setup somewhere or is there a workaround? I setup tab=4 and replace by space is not checked.
A B C X Y Z
Start with the column mode there:
A |B | C | | X |Y Z
and write something
A bla|B bla| C bla| bla| X bla|Y Z
Then in the line, which was blank before it is now <space><space><space><space>bla. Expected is <tab>bla.
I actually submitted a patch to Scintilla a little while back to fix this problem and it was merged into v3.6.7 (released Sept. 2016) of Scintilla. However Notepad++ is still on a much older version of Scintilla, so currently there is no work around that I know of.
Then let’s hope that N++ update Scintilla some day…
