Description

When pasting data into the editor, tab characters don't get converted properly to spaces.

Firefox seems to work well, and IE sort of works, here's the results:

Browser (Browser Version) - Spaces Per Tab Character


Firefox (9.0) - 4

IE (9.0.8112.16421) - 1

Opera (11.60) - 0

Chrome (16.0.912.63 m) - 0

Safari (5.1.2) - 0

I'm an Opera user, and am having to indent code manually after pasting it in, due to tabs being converted to 0 spaces.

@Mex Where do you paste this text from? Could you perhaps give us sample file with this tabbed text so that we could see the problem for our selves?

i copy the text from Notepad or Notepad++.

i've uploaded a file with a tab on the 2nd line, when you paste the entire file content's into the editor, the b character doesn't get indented.
