I don't know about y'all, but sometimes I just want to insert a tab character and I don't want Atom to argue with me about it!
Sometimes I'll try to insert a tab and get snippets inserting a bunch of stuff I don't want, or autocomplete will try to autocomplete something I don't want, or soft tabs is enabled and I literally can't insert an actual tab character without temporarily disabling the setting — which is super annoying!
By default Atom outdents code when you press
shift-tab, but I absolutely never use that! I always
cmd-] for indenting. If you're like me, and sometimes you just want to insert a
damn tab character, I've made
shift-tab map to a new command that forcibly inserts a tab or an
appropriate number of spaces if
editor.softTabs is enabled.
Settings for the package include an option to totally disable honoring
also another command,
force-tab:insert-actual-tab, that never honors soft tab settings.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
