Bug Description

In Eeschema, when I paste in a Graphic Text some text containing tabulation chars, the tabs are rendered as question marks (?).

The tabulations are correctly rendered in the edition field and data isn't altered.

It would be nice to have tabs correctly rendered in order to create arrays for documentation, for example.

Thank you!
