EmEditor supports EditorConfig which is a way to specify a consistent formatting style for a project. One might write the following in a
.editorconfig to indicate that
.txt files have LF line endings and indents are 4 spaces.
[*.txt] end_of_line = lf indent_size = 4
When you open a file in EmEditor and there is a
.editorconfig file in the same folder or in a parent folder, EmEditor will use the settings specified on the
.editorconfig file. EmEditor will show a notification to let you know that
.editorconfig is overriding some settings.
You can turn off EditorConfig support in Tools | Customize… | Edit page and turn off Use .editorconfig.
