Subject:Auto Formatting keeps removing my lines Author:David Sampson Date:20 Sep 2005 05:22 AM
I like to insert alot of white space in my XSL files. The problem is that I also like to use your auto indent feature. The auto indent feature assumes I want all my tags to butt up against the tag just above. This seems to have the exception of when a tag is indented.. then it inserts a line there.
Is there a way to teach Stylus to leave my white space alone!!! :)

you can control some features of the indenter by means of the Tools | Options dialog; in the General -> Editor General page, pick the XSLT Editor from the combo box and check both "Preserve trailing/leading whitespace" and "Preserve newlines between elements".
If these options don't solve your problem, can you post an example of how your XML gets indented and how would you like it to be?
The behavior seems to be to remove new lines above any tag that is "outdenting". The new line appears to be preserved when it is being added between tags which are indented at the same level or the tag is indented further than the tag above... but when the auto indent feature hits a closing tag (i.e. </xsl:...> ) then it removes all new lines above it.
