• Code editor with tab-width slider?

    From Digital Man@VERT to All on Fri Nov 22 11:27:32 2019
    I seem to recall using a graphical text/source code editor at some point which had a graphical slider to allow real-time adjustment of the tab-width (the number of columns for each symmetrical tab-stop) and would automatically reformat the text on the screen to meet the new tab-width.

    Does this ring a bell with any programmers out there? Seen this feature in an editor (or an editor plugin) that you've ever used?

    Thanks,

    digital man

    It does but I don't remember the name.

    Closest thing I can think of is PC-SPF, which was a clone of the mainframe editor SPF. It worked under DOS and OS/2. You could go to a line number,
    type ))#, then to the last line you wanted, do the same, and it would
    indent that block of text by # spaces. Unindent was ((#, and individual
    lines were done with )# and (#, respectively.

    I still have it somewhere for editing some PC-COBOL programs.
