I've been tinkering for hours and I'm becoming desperate.
I want tabs! I like tabs, I see no advantage in using spaces and therefore I ident with tabs (alignment is done with spaces though). But I can't get AUCTeX (or LaTeX-mode for that matter) to use tabs - and it does not seem like anyone else in the world has ever wanted it to.
I'm on Ubuntu so AUCTeX is installed by default, and I guess the relevant parts from my
.emacs are the following:
(setq-default LaTeX-default-offset 8) (setq-default TeX-newline-function 'newline-and-indent) (setq-default indent-tabs-mode t) ; I want tabs. I like tabs (setq-default standard-indent 8) ; A tab is 8 spaces (setq-default tab-width 8) ; A tab is still 8 spaces... what's the difference to the above?
With these settings, it's still indenting using 2(!!) spaces. Please Help and keep in mind that I just switched from vi, so I might not have a firm grasp on every concept of emacs ;)
