change length of tab key in text mode

Post by catterall » Tue Jul 19, 2016 10:24 pm

Must be trivial, but I can't find it.

How do I
1. replace the input from the tab key by a single space
2. reset tab spacing to something other than the default of 4 spaces

Hi Catterall,

In the oXygen menu Options > Editor > Format it is possible to choose the number of spaces inserted by the TAB key, in the "Indent size" drop-down list.
You might also be interested in the "Indent with tabs" option from the same preferences window.
If this option is enabled, indents are created using TAB characters. If instead it is disabled (unchecked), lines are indented using space characters.

Regards,
Costin
