Hi all,

a feature I liked a lot in Gedit that is missing from Textadept is the
elastic tabstops mechanism. If you do not know it yet, you can read
about it here: http://nickgravgaard.com/elastictabstops/

An elastic tabstops implementation is already available for Scintilla:
http://nickgravgaard.com/elastictabstops/news/scintilla-implementation/

It would be great if this feature could be added to Textadept. Elastic
tabstops are great for code alignment, and indispensable if you work
with tab-separated-values files.

By the way, it would be nice to have a menu entry with a function to
enter arbitrary tab sizes, instead of the 4 distinct sizes offered at
the moment.

Kind regards and happy new year!
Joshua
