    Hello everyone,

    at first I'd like to say that it's great to have such a nice password tool on both Windows and Linux!

    Unfortunately I encountered a big problem today. In my KeePass instance on Windows, I created several attachments, all of them RTF. When I open them in the Linux instance, they look really messy:

    I tried to take a different font (like DejaVu Mono) and to use txt-files. Everything wasn't successful because the tabulator spaces seem to be ignored. All I could do is playing around with whitespaces - but that's really to much work...
    The attachments I'm using are some pages long and consist mostly of small to medium sized network plans. The advantage of using the RTF-files is that I could open them on my Android device, so I'd really like to use txt/rtf and the keepass-internal editor.

    Is there a setting to enable that or have you any other ideas? Please let me know!

    Best regards,
    Max

    KeePass uses the rich text box class provided by the framework (i.e. Mono under Linux), thus you need to send your request to the Mono developers.

    I think it might be related to the following:
