Processing pasted tabs

I have ‘Indent Unit’ set to 4 in Inkdrop and TAB is entered as Space x 4.

However, when I copy and paste a code snippet from another editor, the tab does not expand into a space, but remains \t, which is Space x 2.

I have to readjust the indentation in Inkdrop every time.

I think it would be appropriate if pasted tabs were also rendered according to the ‘Indent Unit’.

Copy and paste code or documents that contain tabs.

Hey Avis,

Let me answer after the paternity break!

Congratulations on that!
I’m not in a hurry, so it’s okay.

CodeMirror has an option tabSize:
So, it’d be nice to support it instead of converting tabs into spaces.
