    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration. Since this suggestion was initially raised the Toolkit has undergone several releases including major Eclipse upgrade. Testing in the lastest ACEv12 Toolkit, copy and paste operations with formatting characters such as tab characters seems to work fine - both between ESQL files and also from notepad into Toolkit ESQL file. Idea is closed as delivered.

    Thanks for raising this requirement. As a strategy we do look for parity between the transformation editors where appropriate, and it's completely desirable to bring the ESQL editor up to a par with, say, the Java editor. We'll schedule this work for a follow-on release or fixpack.
