This is a minor request and it seems more like a silly/minor oversight than a truly massive failure, but it would be nice if Sublime had the ability to have different settings for tab width, indent size, indent type (spaces vs. tabs), and what happens when you hit the Tab key. This is something than many free editors (vim, Emacs, Komodo, Kate) have but Sublime seems to be lacking (unless it’s in a plugin somewhere that I’ve missed). For an example of what I mean, let’s say I want this behavior:
: 8 spaces on screen
Indent size: 4 spaces
Tab key behavior: indent using the current indent size and characters settings
I’ve definitely come across several coding style requirements in my career where they want 4 space indents but still want 8 character wide tabs.
