    How can I setup EPIC so that fysical TABs in sources tab to 8 positions, while typing TAB indents 4 positions?

     
    • For global settings =>>
      Menu -> Windows -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> Text Editors => Displayed tab width: 4 (default) change it to 8

      For Perl EPIC =>>

      Thanks for your reply.

      That makes the TAB display 8 pos, which is correct.
      But the editor now also indents 8 pos, which is not desired. It should indent 4 pos.
      When I tell EPIC to use 4 spaces for indenting, I can use TAB to indent, but shift left / shift right still use (real tabs) 8 pos.
