Subject: [PATCH] ox-ascii.el: Fix justify when `indent-tabs-mode' is non-nil
Date: Tue, 17 Aug 2021 23:28:01 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

* lisp/ox-ascii.el (org-ascii--justify-lines): Ensure that
`indent-tabs-mode' is nil when applying indentation to justify lines.
This prevents tab characters from appearing in the export when
`indent-tabs-mode' still has its default value of t.  TINYCHANGE

I've attached a patch to fix an issue where tab characters are generated by
the ASCII exporter when `indent-tabs-mode' has its default value of t.

Here is a simple test case which generates tabs with 'emacs -Q':

  (insert "#+TITLE: My Title\n"
	  "#+OPTIONS: author:nil\n"
	  "#+OPTIONS: toc:nil\n")
  (with-current-buffer "*Org ASCII Export*"

I haven't gone through the FSF copyright assignment process but I'm assuming
this is OK based on the line count.
