general (64)

Created the option to choose whether blank lines will receive indentation when indenting lines forward. Defaults to true (currently functionality).

    Hi. Thanks for the patch, but I don't understand what this does. Can you provide a user case (step by step) that shows the difference between the two states (the option is turned on / off)?

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but the jedit developer page says:

    "Redirect this command to a file and attach it with proper documentation to a patches tracker item. "

    With the current jedit trunk (and also the previous jedit 5.2.0 release) I get the following behavior when using auto-indent == full and tab width != indent width.
    Here is an example with tab width == 8 and indent width == 4.
    t_ marks tab, _ marks a whitespace.

    int myfunc(int a)
    ____if (a==5) {
    ____t_  printf("Hello World\n");

    But I would like to get (and I think this is also more correct):

    int myfunc(int a)
    ____if (a==5) {
    t_      printf("Hello World\n");

    It's a simple patch against revision 24359. Maybe to simple, but it shows what I would like to get.
