tab indention gets confused after copy and paste

This bug annoys me for a long time. But until now I had no idea which situation causes it to happen. Today I had luck to reproduce it :-)

Steps to reproduce:

Open a new note and...

write this first line

  • now intend a bullet list entry
  • write another line
    • >> indent the next bullet line entry BUT the first two characters are followed by a TAB !! and some text -> NOW copy the first three characters of THIS line (including the tab) in the clipboard and press SHIFT+ENTER to create a new line;
      >> in this line paste the three characters (>>TAB) and write some text

This will look similar to this...

This special problem seems to be self healing (after closing and reopening the note) but it makes complex list creation a pain (because until you close and reopen the note the list is a mess)

I think there are other problems related to using tabs and copying text but I can't yet reproduce them. My hope is that if you fix this problem -> the other situations get fixed too.

OS: Win10

version: 3.5

I use indented bullet lists extensively - so fixing this bug would really make my life easier ;-)

Hi Chris and thanks for the report! I was able to reproduce the problem, have added it to the to-be-fixed issue list.

The fix should appear in V3.6 or V3.7
