I think a ticket for an include macro option to preserve tabs is also
The include directive does not remove tabs by default. Only if you set the indent attribute on the include directive and set the tabsize document attribute will tabs be expanded, but that's intended for use with source code, not tsv.
Thanks Dan - I was clearly reading old asciidoc doc (thus my mention of the `include1` macro above).
All great to know, I'll embedding the tab character in the document as separator for now and will watch the issue above (thanks for creating that).
Re: +1 Re: Table include macro - tab-delimited files
Thank you for responding so quickly.
When including a TSV file, how could we force a new row (not only a new cell) at the end of a data line?
My specific intent was to have the tsv included without modification, no wrap, in monospace, with the columns lining up, looking like a formatted datafile, not a gridded table .
My final literal include below gave: monospace formatting, not lined up, without modification, which was sufficient for this dataset.
WORKING AS DESIGNED:
The cause of my original comment in this thread was my data.
It had an empty ending column, which therefore ended in a tab, making a "ragged table".
