Webclipper doesn't preserve indentation of code examples

Recommended Posts

When clipping from stackoverflow, I noticed that indentation is lost, making code-examples hard to read.

In the case of python or explanatory ascii art graphs, the result is outright broken, since indentation is significant there.

E.g. when trying to clip https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47792846/what-is-ours-and-their-while-doing-git-rebase/61339092#61339092:


The browser reports the indented lines as "<span> content</span>"  with a single space in front. Adding more spaces would cause correct indentation, so it isn't a pure CSS issue. However, I cannot judge whether the stored note contains incorrect indentation, or whether the representation sent to rendering component contains an incorrect simplification.
