NB. I have completed this task *yesterday with other editor, am asking now for 2 reasons:
- benefit of other people that might have the same need
- beginner learning of Atom
The question is about how to (left) align normal text, not code; primarily text where every line contains the same number of words.
Ability to align lines with different number of words would be extremely nice but probably more complex.
The question is about text separated by a variable number of whitespace (ex. no csv), text like this:
welcher welche welches welche welchen welche welches welche welches welcher welches welcher welchem welcher welchem welchen
* completed the task with other editor after asking for help on this forum, getting some replies whose main content was to say that I did not ask a clear question Etc.Etc.
Also got a reply that did not suggest a solution within Atom but was kind and constructive; while writing to thank the author of this last reply my account and post disappeared (never seen something like that, since the day of NNTP), recreated account and am posting again
