    Hi,

    after setting preferences to indent with spaces, let's say 4 of them, hitting the Tab key does insert 4 spaces but then hitting the Backspace key when the cursor is sitting to the right of 4 spaces removes only 1 space. I am aware that this is the standard behaviour of Eclipse and that I should be using Shift-Tab instead but hitting Backspace is hardwired into my muscle memory. I am certainly not the only one in this case, am I? After all, most if not all Unix text editor have backspace remove one indent if possible.

    Best wishes,

    Luc J. Bourhis
