Handling of TAB characters in Jabaco source code

When entering text in the Jabaco IDE, TABs are converted to blanks.
This ensures that lines can be properly indented.

However, as soon as you copy externally edited text snippets which include TAB characters, the Jabaco IDE editor no longer converts these TABs into blanks. It becomes quite cumbersome to achieve decent indentation.

Make sure to "de-TAB" your texts before you copy them into tha Jabaco IDE.
There might be suitable "VB6 beautifier" tools available somewhere in the net. Suggestions are welcome!

It would be nice to have an improved TAB handling and probably an automatic source re-formatting feature built into the Jabaco IDE.
