Tab alignment between screen and printed page

Rich AbelRich Abel Junior MemberPosts: 104
I have my studio tabs and auto-indent set at 2 spaces. I use Anonymous 9pt as my font.

I find that the tab alignment in my printed output doesn't jibe with that on screen which is annoying.
This occurs with several different printers.

Anyone have an idea what the source of this issue might be? I wonder bold and italic treatments on various keywords pushes the text beyond my 2 character tab.....

    Most decent editors allow you to use spaces rather than tabs so that you don't have this issue. I don't believe NLS has this capability although I could be wrong, You can copy your code into a 'real' editor and do this though.

    Studio uses an actual TAB character, not the spaces themselves; the setting only tells the editor how to display them. I am not aware of any setting to actually replace TABs with spaces. The TABs are sent directly to the printer, and it renders them according to the font, apparently.
