GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 586457
Parenthesis in strings confuse autoindention
Last modified: 2010-01-10 13:47:34 UTC
Please describe the problem:
If a left parenthesis ("(") is included in a string constant the autoidention is messed up. It is now aligning the code to this parenthesis.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Include an "(" character in a string constant.
2. Try to use autoindenting afterwards.
The code will be aligned to the parenthesis.
The parenthesis should be ignored.
Does this happen every time?
Yes, it does.
Yes, the problem ist that we have no information about the type of string yet. Could be fixed by bug #472660 or by doing something clever by ourselves.
This problem has been fixed in the development version. The fix will be available in the next major software release. Thank you for your bug report.
