Transform tabs into spaces for the purpose of formatting. This tool proves beneficial when dealing with text or code that uses tab-based indentation, reducing its horizontal space footprint. You have the flexibility to determine the number of spaces equivalent to a single tab.
Exclusive handling of leading tabs. With this option enabled, the tool exclusively converts tabs that are not preceded by another character or string (as illustrated in the examples). When disabled, all tabs are replaced with spaces, regardless of their placement.
Example 1: Replacement with 4 spaces. Leading tabs enabled.
In the first example above, the
tab between the words "Hello" and "World" is ignored because the
tab is preceded by the letter 'o'.
Example 2: Replacement with 1 space. Leading tabs disabled.
- In the bottom left corner, you can monitor the count of tabs that have been replaced.
- You can also use a tab within the text box.
- Spaces to Tabs - Convert spaces back to tabs.
