Sometimes atom decided to stop inserting tab characters when I hit the tab key on my keyboard. I’ve been unable to come up with reproducible steps to reproduce, it seems to happen every other day or so.
Restarting my editor sometimes fixes it.
When I enter this state, the following occurs:
- I’m unable to even paste a tab character at the beginning of a line.
- Any indentation action seems to replace tabs with spaces.
As we are required to use tabs for our coding conventions, every time this happens I have to drop back to vim to fix things.
