    In most IDEs, you can configure it to replace tabs with x number of spaces.

    I must have missed the debate...but I will switch my IDE to translate the tabs to spaces instead. Sorry I'm not going to manually tab my code over when I can just as easily hit TAB.

    Ah yes, but the point was that it would be convenient to be able to hit 'tab' in the code editor, and it would insert a tab character instead of changing the focus

    Actually, I've experimented with the tab-replaced-with-spaces thing, but gave up on it because I'd already been using tab for the first half of the project, and I was getting disoriented with hitting backspace 4 times and realizing that it was actually a tab character, or hitting it once and realizing that it was four spaces

    Can you add the "date joined" column back to the membership list?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    or you could just convert tabs to spaces before you hit the save button??

    But then when you open it again, it'll all be spaces...

    So what!
    It will look exactly like it did when you saved it.
    It will look exactly like it did in your co-workers IDE.
    It will look exactly like it did in every editor know to man (that uses a mono-space font).

    That's the point of using spaces - it looks the same everywhere - even on C Board!!

    For those of you who think that "using spaces" means "hitting the space bar"..........damn...

    gg

    [EDIT]
    Ok, so you don't like hitting backspace more than once....I hit up and return since my IDE auto-indents for me.

    You should be able to state what type of code your posting. For example, right beside the Code: header of a code section, it should say Code (<name>):.


    [code=main.c]int main() { }[/code]


    Code (main.c):
    [ int main() { } ]

    What options? I see the option to delete, but that isn't quite what I wanted.
