For now we can't use Tab Key to go from one field to
another. I think it will be more interesting than to
have tabs characters in fields (may be easily replaced
by 4 or more blanks). This depends from usage and may
be parameterized.

    This is Eclipse default behaviour with text field and not
    something specific to the plugin. Eclipse allows you to
    toggle between fields by using CTRL+TAB as opposed to just
    TAB. Try CTRL+SHIFT+TAB to go backwards. But I agree with
    you that in this case this can be annoying. I plan to
    eventually implement keybord shortcuts to ease navigation.
    Because there is already another feature request for that, I
    will mark this item as deleted (see feature request
    #1163704). Thanks.

    Thanks Pascal for the Eclipse tip.

    I had a second thought... since the desired tabbing
    behaviour is normally the one that's expected in most
    software, I will consider implementing this as a
    configurable option, regardless of the solution proposed in
    feature request #1163704.

    A solution has been added to CVS. Will be part of next release.

    Implemented in release 0.7.0. Now a configurable option.
