I recently upgraded to Notepad++ 5.5, and I can't find the tab indentation options. Does anybody know where they were moved? They used to be easily locatable in the Preferences menu, but apparently this has changed...

  • If you don't want to modify a language, but just change the current default, try: Settings, Preferences, Tab Settings, Tab Size. – David Rogers Jul 14 '15 at 17:32

Settings -> Preferences.

Go to the Language Menu/Tab Settings tab. The tab options are on the right-hand side.

Tab/indent away, good sir!

    To be fair, NP++ config is hideous. – DisgruntledGoat Sep 28 '09 at 18:26

    sheesh. You'd think that would be a text box or an incrementer. – CAD bloke Mar 11 '11 at 2:27
  • @DisgruntledGoat, I wonder how they organize it. I can better organize it using a random diceroll. – Pacerier Jun 18 '15 at 23:35
  • In 7.7.1 find it under "Settings -> Preferences... -> Language -> Tab Settings". Set by clicking the underlined number. Check the list of languages for overrides of the default settings. – Jens Jensen Apr 27 at 17:07

Do you mean tab size? If so, check under Edit Components.
