Bad Indentation for Line of Code

For some reason one of my lines is indenting a ton, for just two "tabs"

I've tried cleaning the list, and re-writing to no avail.

    You have trailing tabs on each of the subsequent two lines, triggering the elastic tabstops feature. Delete the extraneous tabs, and all is well.

    Thanks that fixes it. I removed the extra tabs on the following line.

    I didn't realize "elastic tabstops" was causing it... I was re-writing everything above the line, not thinking that stuff below the line could cause an issue.

    I guess I don't know exactly what that feature is. =)

    The "inventor's" page describes it better than I could:
