This is a follow-up to another question of mine. I’m still struggling with the problem mention there, but I found a bit of a workaround by using tabs in my regex stuff.
\t will of course only work with hard tabs. I understand that in Atom one can choose to use hard or soft tabs on a per grammar base(even if several grammars belong to one package).
Now, since my package does need hard tabs, is there a way to force hard tabs in the settings file of a grammar package?
