Ident Guides wrong on tabs

description

Hello,

I just changed my Visual Studio indentation setting from spaces to tabs. Since I've made this change, the guides are consistently off by 1 space (see attachment). As you can see the problem is cumulative so it does get rather noticeable and annoying.

Any idea?

It looks like your indent width and tab width settings are different. These appear next to each other in Tools, Options, Text Editor, <language>, Tabs.

Indent Guides follows your indent setting, while tab characters follow the tab setting. If they're the same, there might be an issue, but I suspect mismatched settings are more likely.
