      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Delete ~/.config/QtProject
      • Launch Qt Creator, enable the experimental ClangFormat plugin, and restart
      • Open the attached project in Qt Creator — the project contains a .clang-format file specifying that tabs should be used for indentation
      • Open main.cpp
      • Move the cursor after the open curly brace and press Enter
      • Type return 0; (do not press Enter)
      • (Note that the return 0; line is indented using a tab — good)
      • File > Save
      • (Note that now the return 0; line is indented using 4 spaces — bad)

      If I run clang-format main.cpp from the command line, it correctly indents using a tab.

      This bug seems to happen only for one-line functions. If the function has 2 or more lines, it correctly indents using tabs.
