I cannot get Atom to use tabs. Regardless of whether Soft Tabs is on or off, even if the entire document has leading tabs and zero leading spaces, starting a new line causes spaces to be inserted. Pressing the Tab button also causes spaces to be inserted.
Related topics/support items seem to be related to wrapping and new line bugs, but this occurs even when pressing the Tab button on the keyboard, which I hope is not related to wrapping code…!
Surely the “Soft Tabs” setting actually does something, but at the moment all I can see is that in every single instance where a Tab should appear, spaces are being inserted. It’s driving me (and my code reviewers) crazy!
Is there a special setting somewhere to say “no, I only want tabs, never insert leading spaces, all of the time, without exception?” I don’t want any “smart” behavior. I want tabs…not spaces.
(Special thanks to the Tabs-to-Spaces package for helping me keep my sanity! )
