Elastic Tabstops — An End to Tabs vs. Spaces?

cwernli ConText (263 comments)

The wonderfully lean and functional editor ConText uses "smart tabs" - the relevant option is active by default.

Note two things:
- it works like Word (i.e. with tabstops defined at certain positions, not with tabs defined as expanding to a certain number of spaces)
- only fixed-width-fonts are available (which is good, since it's a programmer's editor)
