patch based on upstream code
Please describe the problem:
I have checked the option "Insert spaces instead of tabs" in Gedit preferences,
but it doesn't work.
Steps to reproduce:
1. check option "Insert spaces instead of tabs" in Gedit preferences;
2. open a file (or create a new);
3. press <TAB>;
a tab was inserted instead spaces
"Insert spaces instead of tabs", of course
Does this happen every time?
Having exactly the same problem. Is anybody going to fix it?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
gedit -> Edit -> preferences -> Editor tab
Tab width: 4
[X] insert spaces instead of tabs
1) if you have the keyboard [NUM Lock] key activated, gedit will insert <TAB> instead of 4 x <space> but
2) if you remove the [NUM lock], and you get the 4 x <space> as expected.
ymmv, not calling for any action now, just fyi.
