tab stops different between my two iPads

in Questions Posts: 1,049

On my old iPad, the auto-tab after e.g. function foo() is three spaces. On the new one, it is four.

Whazzup with that, please?

    @RonJeffries - what are the relative screen dimensions of your two pads?

    My iPad 1 has 4 spaces between tabs while my iPad Air 3 has 3 spaces between tabs.

    Has there been a change in default font for Codea, monospace versus proportional?

    On my iPad 1, Codea version 1.5.5 (21), when I key the numbers 1 thru 30 and key the alphabet under it, the letter z is under 26, which is mono space. The same thing happens on my iPad Air 3, Codea version 3.2.4 (232). But if I key the same thing here, the letter z is under 23, which is proportional. So the Codea letter spacing is the same from my iPad 1 to now. As for the tab spacing, it changed from 4 to 3 from my iPad 1 to now.

    I'd like to know a) why it's different on different same-size iPads, and b) how to make it be the same. Both iPads are fully up to date.

    @simeon I know this is trivial but can you please take a moment and explain what's making my two iPad pros (one newer) have different tab stops in the editor? And is there a way to make them the same?
