  • Leading Spaces not Shown in Text Compare HTML Report

    When running a "Text Compare Report" to HTML, the report strips leading spaces in lines containing only one leading space. This is a major problem for me as the files I'm dealing with often have a leading space and sometimes do not. This is an important differentiator and one that needs to be shown in the report with the spacing maintained from the originals. Is there a setting I can change to make this work right?

    Thanks for writing in.

    We actually have the whitespace in the report (if you view the HTML as plain text/code), but when viewing in most browsers, the browser doesn't display the whitespace. We actually workaround this once there is more than one whitespace character, but do not currently handle if there is only one. I'll open a tracker entry to see if we can get this resolved.
