Is it possible to automatically update all tabs within a document?


I just changed the default tabbing from 2 spaces to 4. Is there a way to update this within the document so that everything is consistent?

I understand that you can just search and replace the spaces with the find command, but I believe it would be better if it did this by default.


It’s a little complicated … but you can do this:

  1. Leave the settings at two spaces
  2. Convert spaces to tabs
  3. Change the settings to four spaces
  4. Convert tabs to spaces
