Hi there,

Console don't show tab (\t) character as tabs, but is converted to space. (normal textarea behavior)

This makes it hard to read commands like M122 out.

Expected:
> M122
		X	Y
Enabled		true	false
Set current	750	800
RMS current	734	1436
MAX current	1035	2025
Run current	23/31	25/31
Hold current	13/31	13/31
Reality:
> M122
X Y
Enabled true false
Set current 750 800
RMS current 734 1436
MAX current 1035 2025
Run current 23/31 25/31
Hold current 13/31 13/31

Could that be fixed somehow?

Kind regards
Dan

  • I have to think about it. But depending on text size it would not always format. e.g. if tab is 4 spaces. Main problem is that html has no concept for tab. A tab is just a whitespace.
  • I know.... Alternativ switch to a monospaced fonts or replace \t with X number of spaces
  • It is mono spaced. What I think about is converting to spaces before I store it in log and send around. That would also help the readers of logs.
