    Having recently migrated from PSPad (for various reasons) my only and dearly
    missed functionality are “smart tabs” or “smart spaces”, i.e.:

    “TAB press will cause the cursor to follow words from previous line(s).”
    (as in PSPad’s description)

    ***Example 1***
    ↑ indicates the cursor location

    line1 does xyz1;    // comment 1
    line2 does xyz2;    // comment 2
    line three; // comment 3
                ↑

    executing “smart_tab_forward.jsee”

    line1 does xyz1;    // comment 1
    line2 does xyz2;    // comment 2
    line three;         // comment 3

    ***Example 2***
    ↑ indicates the cursor location

    line1 does xyz1;    // comment 1
    line2 does xyz2;    // comment 2
    line three;            // comment 3
                           ↑

    executing “smart_tab_backward.jsee”

    line1 does xyz1;    // comment 1
    line2 does xyz2;    // comment 2
    line three;         // comment 3

    Basically the tab is adapted according to the first previous line which delivers
    a suitable tab anchor point (default is to consider the preceeding 20 lines).
    It also works with multi-line selections.

    Perhaps this is of use for someone.

    Best wishes,

    Patrick

    PS Required files:

    ● smart_tab_forward.jsee
    ● smart_tab_backward.jsee
    ● calc_smart_tab_forward.jsee // contains a subfunction for smart_tab_forward.jsee
    ● calc_smart_tab_backward.jsee // contains a subfunction for smart_tab_backward.jsee

    I tried to upload the files to the library but they didn’t show up yet.
    You can also get them from Google Drive:

    Uploaded a new version (improved the backward tab behaviour).
    The newest version will be posted under the same Google Drive link as above.

    PS
    I’ll no longer update the library, except if I can find out how to delete outdated code.
