The Editor - Possible Improvements
When copying and pasting code, I'm sure many have run into a problem dealing with indentation. When trying to indent a line (or lines of code), the asker or editor must manually type in or delete the spaces in order to have correct indentation.
In my opinion, it would be much more useful (especially on the code-focused stackexchange sites) to have the tab key work similar to how it works in a modern IDE. That is to say, when the typer presses the TAB key, the cursor will indent a certain number of spaces.
More advanced functionality would also include highlighting blocks of text for group indentation or de-indentation after the press of the TAB key.
Is this feature request feasible, or even possible with modern browsers? If it is, can it be incorporated into the stackexchange sites?
