With other people forcing me into spaces, this just might save my sanity.

Switching to 5 star due to fix of SQL intellisense issue.

I like it, but it's a little buggy sometimes (caret ends up at weird places that it wouldn't otherwise -- like the beginning of a line instead of at the next logical insertion point) -- also it only seems to work if "use spaces instead of tabs" is set as your preference in the editor and I don't think there's a way to configure it... that's a shame when you have to deal with other people's projects/code and don't want to change your settings.

Good idea - normal one-space-at-a-time backspace is infuriating. Getting better with each update!

    • I have 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 4.5.1, and 4.5.2 all installed and I get this error message when trying to install Tab Sanity:

    • I renamed it to a zip, found the xml file and commented out the line about the required version of .NET, and was able to install it, and it appears to be working.  Woot.
    • Hi Mikey. Please direct all issues to Also, I just published TabSanity for VS 2015, if that's of interest to you.
