12.2 Whitespace

  • Trim end of line whitespace - When enabled, end of line whitespace is deleted.

  • Compact whitespace groups - When enabled, consecutive whitespace characters are trimmed to a single space character. It does not affect indentation, that is the whitespace at the beginning of a line is not affected by this option.

  • Tabs and Spaces - Lines are indented using tabs or spaces depending on the preferences configured in Window > Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors:

    • If the Insert spaces for tabs option is enabled, indentation will use space characters, otherwise tabs will be used.

    • The Displayed tab width option controls the size of a tab in spaces.

  • Add whitespace before - Space separated list of tokens to add whitespace before.

  • Add whitespace after - Space separated list of tokens to add whitespace after.
