  • Hi Ron,

    regarding your problems with the indentation in Padre. By default, it auto-detects the indentation settings of the currently opened file and adjusts its settings to that. This works very well most of the time.

    If you want to manually set your indentation for all (not only new) files, please try disabling the automatic indentation detection in the preferences and try again. Also, please let me know if that fixed your problems.

    Furthermore, it's currently a little ambiguous what the indentation settings mean and how the desired effect maps to the settings. Tab width => number of columns displayed per tab character. indent width => number of columns to use for each indentation level. use tabs (bool) => use tabs for indentation yes/no. If you set the tab width to something other than the indentation width and enable tabbing, Padre will do "emacs-style" tab compression of the indentation and use spaces only for the right-most indentation level.

    Cheers,
    Steffen

    • Hi tsee

      Thanx for the reply.

      Yes, I turned off auto-indent, and it does what I expect when displaying a pre-existing Perl module.
