Tab woes - help needed
Doug Byrt last edited by
I have been using Google Docs for note taking and general data storage for a while and would like to port my data into text files, the main reason being is that I want my data in a non proprietary format.
I issue I have is this: if I create a document in Notepad++ with tabbed indents and then open it in another text editor (notepad, textedit, wordpad etc)
The tabbing is all over the place.
If anyone can offer an explanation I would be grateful

when formatting text by indenting the critical component is the font.
As long as all editors uses the same font, with the same size, there is a good chance that the
formatted text looks the same.
The next point is, how do you intend? By using the tab?
I assume so, editors can have different settings in regards to the width of a tab because
it is possible that a tab is represented by spaces. One editor might set 4 space per tab
whereas another one sets 2 spaces or 8 …
and monospaced fonts are most suitable when formatting text.
