I'm trying to move development from Textmate to Eclipse on Snow Leopard.
We use tabs for indentation in python source and as such we find ourselves indenting
and dedenting blocks of text. I have the two options below set.
1/ General/Editors/Text Editors
Insert spaces for tabs. unclicked
I also turn on Show whitespace characters
Replace tabs with spaces with typing.
In our tab indented world this is also off.
I indent and dedent with Tab & Shift/Tab which unfortunately inserts Spaces
not Tabs. I can use the Source menu item (which is not avaialble as a key shortcut.)
Convert tabs to space tabs & Convert Space Tabs to tabs. But this is rather
involved. IS there any way of inserting tabs when the Tab key is pressed to

I was checking this issue and was going to say that just closing/reopening the
editor should fix it.
I've just fixed it for 1.6.3 so that it properly handles the preference change
so that reopening the editor is not needed anymore.
