The tab indent values are only part of the solution.

Switch to PHP from All Languages and check you have 0 for initial indentation. Also I have 4 spaces for continuation indentation, and 4 also for array declaration indentation.

Then also switch over to Category "Blank Lines" and look for a 1 where you might need a 0. I have:

Hi all,

I just don't get it...

In Options > Editor > Formatting I have both "Number of Spaces per Indend" and "Tab Size" set to 4 (four spaces). I have "Expand Tabs to Spaces" checked as well.

I set cursor at a line that has exactly this indent (four spaces). I hit enter. NB adds new line and set cursor to... eighth column. Giving it indent as it was set in default NB installation (8 spaces).

When I hit Shift-Tab to reduce indent, it correctly reduces it to four spaces. But when I hit Shfit-Tab again (remove indent at all) and then Tab (add indend) it again ignores configuration and adds 8-spaces long indent.

This strange (?) things happens only on new lines added by NB, by hitting Enter on existing one. If I hit Tab on any line that was already there, an indent of four spaces is correctly added.

This doesn't make sense for me at all. Is this some kind of bug or do I misunderstand, how indents works in NB?
