Tabs to Spaces conversion on Save

If in Tabs and Spaces page for syntax you have selected to Replace Tabs by Spaces, HippoEDIT will do such conversion only when you type new text. Already existing text will not be changed.

If you want HippoEDIT to apply such Tabs to Spaces conversion also on existing text on Save, you can use following XML flag from settings.xml:

<Formatting>
   <TabConvertOnSave>true</TabConvertOnSave>
</Formatting> 

The value only relevant for Tab modes which do not allow tabs.
