This question about Using an extension: Answered

No Carriage Return (\n) at the end of %FIDEFINED% tag when you use %ELSEDEFINED%

Example:

---
%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}%
Item 1<br>
Item 2
%FIDEFINED%
---
%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}%
Item 1<br>
Item 2
%ELSEDEFINED%
Item 3
%FIDEFINED%
---

Is rendered (wrong):


%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}% Item 1
Item 2 %FIDEFINED%
%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}% Item 1
Item 2 %ELSEDEFINED% Item 3 %FIDEFINED%

Correct rendering:


%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}% Item 1
Item 2 %FIDEFINED%
%IFDEFINEDTHEN{'test'}% Item 1
Item 2 %ELSEDEFINED% Item 3 %FIDEFINED%

Note

If you use %ELSEDEFINED% tag the rendering is wrong. Probably a carriage return is missing at the end of %FIDEFINED% tag

That's not a bug, that's a feature. See the documentation about "glue". Both IFDEFINED as well as its block version support "eating up" white spaces at both ends of the macro. This can be turned off with glue="off" .

For me it is not intuitive, I can understand a "glue" default value to "off" ... but it matches your specifications.
I'm sorry for my needless question.
