Tab stops not rendering properly?


Hey folks. I just started using Atom today, so sorry if I’m just missing something.

I’m trying to get files in a project I’m working on to render properly. The project uses hard tabs and expects the tab stops to be 8 characters apart. I assumed I could get this to work by simply setting config.tabLength = 8 and config.softTabs = false. When I do so, though, it seems to display the file like this (since I’m a new user I don’t seem to be able to include images in my posts, so these are just links):

While in vim it displays like this:

It seems like I somehow have Atom set up to simply replace each tab character with 8 spaces instead of interpreting the tab as “go to the next tab stop.” Any idea on how I might get the expected behavior?

Tabulators are not aligned correctly
