I copy code from an editor into a Google Spreadsheet cell.

Unfortunately, it left-aligns the code making it hard to read.

However, when I double-click on it to edit it, the tabs are still there (second image) so I know it didn't delete the tabs, just collapsed them.

How do I get Google Spreadsheets to also display the code showing the tabs as tabs instead of collapsing them?
