If you create a visualforce page like the following:
save it, then retrieve it the output will be:
notice the extra space after the opening bracket?
Granted on small files like this it’s not an issue but when dealing with a large file it can be a little bit of a pain when using version control as this would show differences.
Could we have an option to either
- remove spaces on retrieval on opening brackets.
- when formatting/creating brackets add a space in.
The behaviour exists whenever a page is saved (dev console, editor, API etc).
Of course, we queried SF about it and got the WAD response.
