in reply to No Hard Tabs in Code

Hello Xiong...

I love my current text editor Notepad++ when it comes to tabination. Not only does it allow me to set the length of tabs (I use 2 spaces), it replaces the tabs with the spaces immediately. When I have to outdent a section of code, all I have to do is hit shift-tab, and even though I have spaces, the program knows what I really want, so I don't have to worry about the outdenting.

All my code is nicely lined up with spaces, since it is the only way to guarantee that my code is the same wherever I post it. Notepadd++ makes my code all nice and portable. It always has a lot of pretty colors for my code. I like the pretty colors. :)

Have a nice day!
Lady Aleena
