This tip and Tip 2.9 were her least favorite features to test. It drove her crazy trying to keep track of when a tab should get inserted, when the cursor should move to the correct formatted position, and so on and so forth. Now she uses only spaces in her code. =)

Go to Tools–Options–Text Editor––Tabs to switch between using tabs and inserting spaces.

Note that you can set this for all languages on the Text Editor–All Languages page, but usually this is something you want to set for each individual language.

Happy Programming! =)
