Tabs vs Spaces when merging


Recommended Posts

In Visual studio, tabs are treated as 4 spaces (configurable actually).. in the internal plastic merge tool, tabs display as 8 spaces..

I've run into a problem where one of our devs switches out all the spaces with tabs on one branch, then when you merge from another branch the comparison in the tool lays out in an unreadabe format.

I've told the dev to stop converting to tabs (it's actually the ms vs2010 developer extension that's doing it).

It would be great if we cold tell the diff tool to view tabs as n spaces.
