Let me ask again, this time without the sarcasm.
Will this ever be fixed?
It is a real pain to use ped with a fixed pitch font and not know what
column your in.

Can I use some other fixed width font that won’t exhibit this?

It is curious that it also happens with different letters too, not just
‘unsigned int’. That just happens to be my specific example.

Unfortunately this is a known issue. The reason it is occurring is
once you have typed unsigned int you are only one pixel away from where
next character(tab stop) will be because the tab stops are set to 4

In ped, I am using FixedFont to edit source files. If I type the two
unsigned int xyz;
where there is a space between the ‘unsigned’ and the ‘int’ and a
tab> character between the ‘int’ and the ‘xyz’, the ‘xyz’ shows up right
next to the ‘int’. It should appear that there are 3 space character widths
between the ‘int’ and the ‘xyz’.
PS. My tab width is set to 4.
