What can this extension do?[edit]

Tab Override allows you to use the tab key as you normally would in a text editor or IDE. In other words, pressing the tab key inserts a tab character rather than removing focus from the text area. This makes writing source code much easier.


No configuration required. After it is installed you can test it by editing a page and pressing the tab key in the textarea.
