Is it possible to have the backspace delete to the previous indent instead of just a single character?
If I have the cursor just in front of the
on line 3, I would like to have the backspace delete 4 spaces instead of just 1 space. If I have the cursor just in front of the on line 4, I would like to press the backspace key twice to have it line up with the
- on line 1.
I was able to find the Tabify and Untabify commands which have helped some.October 15, 2012 at 2:15 pm #10583
So is this currently doable and I’m missing the setting or should this be moved to Suggestions?October 15, 2012 at 4:46 pm #10584
The current version doesn’t support such a feature, except for making a macro or snippet for that purpose and assign that macro or snippet as BACKSPACE. I will think about that in future versions if this is important to you. You can also use SHIFT + TAB to delete tabs after selecting the lines you want to remove indent.

Yes, please add it to the wishlist.October 19, 2012 at 7:45 pm #10591
Actually, never mind.
I found out that the other editors I use have the same functionality. The difference was that I had tab indenting turned on in them whereas I was using space indenting in EmEditor.
Thanks for a great product.
