Re: Pressing TAB alligns the cursor according to the content of the previous line

#1 Pressing TAB alligns the cursor according to the content of the previous line

I have configured PsPad so that a tab corresponds to two spaces, and to insert spaces instead of real tabs. I would expect that pressing a tab, would move the cursor to the next odd column number to the right. Instead, the cursor is moved to align to to the next word of the previous line! For example, if I have a line

# aaaaaaa bbbbbbbbbbb :ccccc

and on the next line, I press the tab key several times, the cursor aligns first under the '#', then under the first 'a', then under the first 'b', and then under the colon.

I guess there must be some obscure editor setting which causes this behaviour. Could somebody tell me how to switch it off?
