[ACCEPTED]-How can I stay tab-free in Geany on Ubuntu?-geany
You are looking for 'soft tabs'
Edit > Preferences > Editor > Indentation > Type > Spaces
After changing 3 the setting, close and reopen the file.
To 2 apply the tab settings to every document 1 in the current session, also click:
DTing is right but on thing to remember: You 6 have to close all files (tabs) in Geany 5 and open them up again to have the new settings 4 work in each file. It took me days to figure 3 out that I not only have to close geany 2 and open it up again but that I also have 1 to re-open each file seperately.
I know I'm a bit late on this, but hopefully 3 this answer might help someone else. With 2 Geany closed, edit
~/.config/geany/geany.conf with some other editor, changing 1 the lines:
and the settings will "take".
To take effect on opened documents has to 2 go to:
- Document-> indent_type -> spaces.
The document configuration has prevalence 1 over the global.
Here's another tip I like that works in 9 almost any editor. Enable view whitespace, and 8 never get confused again about what's in 7 the file:
Preferences > Editor > Display > ✔ Show Whitespace
Then restart Geany.
I use the 6 the syntax highlighting features to make 5 these symbols very subtle, a low contrast 4 greyscale, so one has to look to see them. The 3 tab is still somewhat easy to see in scintilla 2 editors because it it will be a multi-character 1 long arrow.
I faced the same problem, but documents 2 opened as part of project.
In this case the 1 tab/spaces setting is overriden by project->preferences
