Difference between tab length in web & mac client

Recommended Posts

The length of a tab (as in long whitespace, not a browser tab) differs between the web client and the mac client. This is really annoying.

I keep my to-do list in Evernote. I use lots of tabs. I've now started using a Linux computer and so am forced to use the web browser as there is good alternative. As a result, my to-do list now has a mish mash of tab lengths.

Would be great if the developers could agree on a single tab length!

Well, the "tabs" would be encoded in the Evernote ENML markup, and that wouldn't change between different platforms. Maybe it's just a configuration difference in the embedded .

Just for experimentation's sake, I whipped up a simple indentation test; the first some plain indentations, the second, a bulleted list, something like the following:

Unindented
Indented 1
Indented 2
Indented 3
 
List
  • item 1
    • item 1.1
    • item 2.1
      • item 1.2

Here's the ENML for that:

<en-note>
<div>
    <div><b>Indent Test</b></div>
    <div><br/></div>
    <div>Unindented</div>
    <div style="margin-left: 40px;">Indented 1</div>
    <div style="margin-left: 80px;">Indented 2</div>
    <div style="margin-left: 120px;">Indented 3</div>
    <div><br/></div>
    <div>List</div>
    <ul>
        <li><div>item 1</div></li>
        <ul>
            <li><div>item 1.1</div></li>
            <li><div>item 2.1</div></li>
            <ul>
                <li><div>item 1.2</div></li>
            </ul>
        </ul>
    </ul>
    <div><br/></div>
    <div><br/></div>
</div>
</en-note>]]>

I see the "tabs" used by simple indentation as absolute pixel offsets, while the "tabs" used in a bullet list are implicit in the list markup. I'd guess that the latter case is what's different among different platforms due to the implicit indentations for list, but I don't know for certain.
