Is this what you are looking for:

      |textadept.editing.auto_indent| (bool)

Match the previous line’s indentation level after inserting a new line.
The default value is |true|.

I would add to Lukas' question the following:

Is there a way (or can a way be made) such that when the caret is at the
end of a line when {enter} is pressed, the indentation follows the above
setting, *but* when the caret is at the beginning of a line when {enter}
is pressed, no indentation takes place?

It is very disconcerting when {enter} is pressed at the beginning of a
line, and suddenly the current line jumps right to match indentation
above it!
