I am testing IDE 9.2.1 for OSX coming from IDE 8.5
I am having a problem with tabbing & dedenting and not sure if it's just me.
1) If I select a group of text and hit tab, the text is correctly indented. However I can not highlight the same text, or any text anywhere for that matter and Dedent it from the Code => Dedent menu. All the Indent, Dedent and tabify options are greyed out.
2) For some reason I can not get my tab/indent preferences to override the tabs in an existing file.
I have the tab indent set to 4 spaces. If I open a txt file that for some reason has a tab at 20+ characters there is nothing I can do to make 1 tab/indent be equal to 4 spaces.
I have tried creating a new file and entering some text. I named that file new.txt the file has proper indenting.
Then I copy text from my old.txt with odd indenting. paste the text into new.txt and the indenting is correct. So far so good.
However, if I then close old.txt and file => saveas new.txt as old.txt the tab stops revert to the prev incorrect positions from old.txt even tho I am saving over the top of it.
