Works fine for me.
Hi Dave, could you please send a screenshot showing your code lining up vertically using tabs?
Maybe I could work out how to fix it?
Here is a screenshot of my code in eclipse(a great program for editing source code-too bad the last development on JSEclipse was two years ago... thanks to Adobe buying them out...)
And here a screenshot of the same code in Extendscript
As you can see the colons do not line up, I am using the same font and size in both programs, and they used to line up in Extendscript v2.
Ah, your coding style is completely different from mine.
How many spaces per tab do you have set in preferences? Are you using a monospaced font?
I have 4 tab stops set(same as in eclipse).
The font I use in eclipse is Courier New Regular 12. The font in ExtendScript is Courier New 12, I dont have a thing to select 'regular'.
I'm guessing courier new is a monospaced font.
it doesnt seem to matter what font i use, things just simply dont line up properly using tabs in es3.
hello? anyone out there who cares?
adobe doesn't have any official support for this product in particular so it seems to be a little hard to have this bug fixed.
i've tried to get it resolved through the after effects product support, but so far have had trouble getting into the support portal since the license isn't under my account, since it is licensed by the company i work for and i even saw the guy who got these licenses have trouble adding the support portal for after effects into his account.
I always use tabs, never spaces, so I didn't notice. But you seem to be right, I see the following:
1. Tab stops do not align with spaces.
2. The number of spaces I set in preferences for tab stops don't have any influence.
It seems tab stops are placed independent of the width of spaces. Quite annoying if you're using your style of coding.
>2. The number of spaces I set in preferences for tab stops don't have any influence.
Changing this setting has no effect on the active window, but you see the result when you create a new script file.
Ben -- I can reproduce the behaviour that you see and it is indeed pretty hopeless.
My impression is that two (or however many you set in preferences) spaces are being used instead of tab characters, so tabs in ESTK CS4 align only at the beginning of lines (which happens to be the only place I use them).
Thanks guys, It's good to know other people have the same problem. I'm going to try as hard as I can to bring this up with Adobe support.
