Description aobrien 2009-01-17 17:28:18 UTC
When the python editor opens an existing file it would be awfully helpful if it was smart enough to figure out wether on not to use spaces or tabs.  I have an 
existing python app that I'm working on - I wanted to try out the NetBeans IDE and due to the default settings (spaces by default not tabs) all of the files I had 
edited through errors when I tried to run them.  It was easy enough to fix it but I stopped evaluating NetBeans because of it.  I tried it again today (changing 
the spaces to tabs for indents first) and absolutely love it!!!!

If the python editor had been smart enough to figure out my application's indention, I would have used it immediately and you guys would have had a new 
convert.
