conserve-indentation

Arguments: configuration

Returns the value of the conserve-indentation property of configuration. The current configuration is the value of (configuration *system*) (see configuration and *system*).

If the value of this property is true, the indentation style (of Lisp code entered in an Editor buffer) will be closer in style to the style used in Emacs generally (but not in the IDE Emacs editor mode). Note that exceptions can be made for individual operators in the IDE editor by calling (setf text-edit-indentation) on the desired operators. Note that operators whose names begin with strings such as "with-", "do-", and "def-" indent more closely regardless of the value of this property.

When this property is nil, arguments on successive lines will be left-justified with a first argument that is on the same line as its operator, unless an indentation style has been established for the particular operator with a call to (setf text-edit-indentation) or the operator begins with certain strings such as "with-", "do-", or "def" that always indent more closely. This default matches indentation in the Emacs editor. Setting this property to true causes successive lines to always indent more closely.

The value of this property may be set with setf with a form like

(setf (conserve-indentation (configuration *system*)) [new-value])

The value can also be set by checking the appropriate box on the Editor tab of the Options dialog.
