Tabbing uses spaces with python
Whenever I try to tab in a python document, it instead places 4 spaces.
I know that spaces can be used instead of tabs but that is what I am accustomed to using.
What I am asking, is how to make notepad++ tab with the TAB character and not spaces
Settings > Preferences > Language has the tab settings, both globally and on a per-language basis (so you would want to change the Python tab setting if you only want to affect Python source code tabs)
Think hard about doing such a thing.
Industry recommended standard for Python is spaces, not tab characters.
If you really want to do it, here’s the UI for changing it that Peter referenced; you’d untick the Replace by space box:
@alan-kilborn I have thought hard, I just hate indenting with spaces
