Hi Dave,

I know this is digging up something from the past, but is this still planned
for the next release? I don't see it on the development TODO list.

Under File -> Options -> Query the is an indent characters option.

Set it to zero and you will get single tab indents.
Set it to a multiple of 8, and you will get N/8 tabs
Set it to any other number and you will get that many spaces.

I realise this is completely unintuitive but it might help you for now.
Doing it properly was on my list for this cycle but never got done. I
will look at it for the next release.

Yes, that is also on my personal todo.
