Screen captures of editor and print preview

Code is indented by tabs, but printout and print preview does not show these tabs, everything is instead aligned to the left. If lines are indented via spaces instead of tabs it looks OK.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling as well as using a different font.

Reproducible in NB 7.1 Beta.

hey.. is there any news about this enhancement?

This applies to 7.2 as well. A workaround mentioned was to enable converting tabs to spaces in the editor section of the preferences, then highlight an entire document of code, press Tab, then Shift tab. The print window will then show your document more or less like it should.

It would be nice to see some attention on this bug though... it seems to be approaching it two year anniversary of being "new".

If someone feels really strongly about this please provide patches. Closing as wont fix.
