Description David Newman 2015-09-29 13:31:21 UTC
mono strips out leading whitespace and blank lines when generating XML documentation files. This behavior is different from Visual Studio on Windows, and, as a result, formatting is lost in the generated files.
Comment 1 David Newman 2015-09-29 13:39:32 UTC
For example, a comment like the following:
///A line
///   An indented line

looks like this in the XML file:
A line
An indented line
