A bit of a workaround but have a look at, it should agressively overwrite and apply settings like this in your editor.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Didn't work for me. I put this file in the same folder as eclipse.ini
Also put it in the same folder as the code.

# EditorConfig is awesome:

# top-most EditorConfig file
root = true

# 2 space indentation
indent_style = space
indent_size = 2

When I read the answer below, I think I completely misunderstood your question. I thought it was about the source file being represented with too much spaces, did not think you were talking about spacing in plantuml's output...

So please disregard my answer (although editorconfig really is a great project! :))

Could post a simple example of the diagram you are using ?

My guess is that you are using something like that:

object foo {


Which give:

Is this the case ?

In that case, the size of \t is hardcoded to 8 in PlantUML (and not 4).

But we may add a skinparam attribute to let people change it to another value.

Is this what you are looking for ?

Yes, this is why I am trying.
Object Obj2{
uint32_t abc

skinparam would be nice.

In the last beta,
we have added a skinparam tabSize.


skinparam tabSize 2
object foo {

Does is work for you ?
