#1076 Spaces converted to tabs on auto indent

When using auto indent with the tab size is set to 8 anytime a line is indented 8 or more space the spaces are converted to tabs in chunks of 8. This can be really annoying when using spaces to keep all the lines at the same distance with different tab settings (other editors/users). Note this does not happen if "replace with spaces" is selected but I find it inconvenient to use as it also disables my ability to easily place tabs into the document. Although it should still use spaces and not tabs as it can break the formatting if the lines switch between tabs and spaces.
