Normally W32Pad acts in line, and has very little hiccups.

Today, I noticed that some of the spacing seemed a bit off from what was shown on the screen.
I'll list what it looks like below, using <tab> for a tab character, and <crlf> for an Enter (windows system).

Code:
DSL Tests<tab>$1<crlf>
T1 Tests<tab>$1<crlf>
DSL Test<tab>$1<crlf>
T1 Test<tab><tab>$1<crlf>

On the screen, this had an output of:
Code:
DSL Tests       $1
T1 Tests        $1
DSL Test        $1
T1 Test         $1

The printed version showed:
Code:
DSL Tests       $1
T1 Tests $1
DSL Test $1
T1 Test         $1
Adding additional tabs brought it in line, but it still was odd that I had to do this. 

Printed in XP Pro, US English, on an HP Laserjet 4000.  Tools -> Options -> Editor has Highlight URLS, Single Click Launch URL, Auto Indent, and Smart Home checked.  Font is Fixedsys, tab size is 8. 

I checked notepad, and saw that it was using Lucida Console.  I substituted that font instead of Fixedsys, and the problem persists.  The same text in Notepad seems to print as it should.

Tested in 1.5.10.4, and 1.5.9.1 and both versions showed the same output.

Is this normal operating behaviour, or is something amiss?

Thanks!

I will take a look at this when I get a chance.

Thank you,

Thanks Gena01.

Have you had a chance to confirm this as a bug, or should I treat it as a nonconfirmable random user incident, and continue troubleshooting?

Thanks again!

I am still investigating. In my environment the problem is with the last line that has two tabs. I also found a few small things with the printing code. Might fix a few things there as well.
