I’m currently trying to figure out how to distinguish tab width from indentation width in Atom. In a variety of editors (kate, visual studio, jedit) there is an indentation width that is distinctly different from the tab width. See image below (from Kate settings).
The difference between the two is as follows.
- Tab width: is used when displaying hard tab characters
- Indent width: is used when a level of indent is to be added or removed
Ultimately my aim is to set my tab width to 8 and my indent width to 2 in Atom (just like in the image above actually)
Any ideas would be appreciated
