Make cursor keys move by a single space, not multiple spaces
« on: November 16, 2021, 11:46:32 pm »
When coding in Python, SlickEdit moves my cursor by two spaces instead of one when I used the left and right keys. This is presumably a reflection of the indent size I use.

I'd prefer SlickEdit to only move the cursor by one space. Which setting do I need to change to suppress the multiple space move?

(I am in no way denigrating the feature; it's just not what my ingrained muscle memory is accustomed to.)

Are there real tab characters in the file?

Change "Cursor left/right in leading spaces" to "Move cursor by one physical character" (Tools>Options>Editing>Cursor Movement)

Thank you!

BTW, there are no tabs in the file.
