Yeah, that sample didn't have any indents (likely result of the existing pain point in this area), but they are preserved in the new system. Made a quick text file with tabbed indents, cut, paste code. See attached.

Kent,

Attach a sample (text file so current system preserved it) and I'll cut/paste in a third test.

Here's a small portion out of a big routine of mine, with a pretty typical angle-bracketed default offering in a prompt, a situation in which, to date, the website would typically omit the angle brackets and everything between them, if it was pasted into a message body rather than attached.

Opened in TextPad, cut, pasted code. Looks good.

All right! That will avoid a lot of cautionary explanations, missed code content, etc.... I will also be interested to see whether prior posts with that problem will be "fixed" when opened in the new website interface.

Unfortunately, I don't expect past posts will be "corrected." We will migrate what was written to the current database. I don't believe the code formatting issues of the past were only a display issue.

Eric:

What do you get if you reply to that message, or if you copy and paste the
code out of it and into a new message?

Eric - That was with tabs??????

How many tabs are on furthest indented line, Eric?

I'm almost afraid to ask, but is the number of spaces
that a tab uses configurable?

What about the line wrapping problem that currently
exists with [code] ?

The first sample I posted was somethign simple I quickly created with tabs and the tabs were preserved in the post (not converted to spaces). The .lsp sample Kent provided contained spaces (no tabs) and those spaces were preserved when I pasted it into the new system as well. Line wrapping is preserved when using the "Paste Code" option in the new editor. The Paste Code feature inserts the code into an embedded scrollable window that allows width beyond the interface's native message width. Current use of code tag as a workaround will no longer be necessary.

Formatting preserved. Attached text file where I cut/pasted from the interface into a text file. Matches the original .lsp file provided.
