... I'll be looking for a different editor ...
The search for a comfortable editor is so tedious that when we find one, it usually has to be pried from our cold, dead hands. But be aware that the authors of most modern programmer's editors know that we live in a very diverse world, and they have made great efforts to accommodate every possible text file format variation and make them all 'look' right. You may encounter an editor with a default configuration that matches your assumptions about text files, but never assume these are the only configurations (or assumptions) possible.
