How can I set "display-tab-width" to 8 spaces and "indent-width" to
current editor preferences dialog?
I couldn't do that using latest SVN version of geany.
Are you sure you're running latest SVN? (svn up & rebuild, install).
In the Edit->Preferences dialog, on the Editor tab:
Under Indentation first set Width for "indent-width". Then set
Type to 'Tabs and Spaces', and below that set 'Hard tab width'
Note: 'Hard tab width' was renamed from just 'Tab width' on Monday for
Still there is no distinguish between display tabs
width and single
There is when using the 'Tabs and Spaces' Type.
