Tab size customization

Post by Gingko »


I just want to make a small suggestion that I think it could be useful.

Would it be possible to have the tab size option (Options -> Editor) customizable differently according to what you are comparing ?
For example having different values of this options saved, either associated with file filters or with profiles ?

I like very much Compare It! and I use it in many projects.
But not all of these projects need to display text files with the same tab size, so I am forced to change the option each time I switch from one project to another.

For example when programming in C++, I commonly use tab sizes of 3 or 4, but when I program in assembly code it is better to use a tab size of 8.
I also have some web sites (HTML) where I rather need a tab size of 2.

Best regards,
