When lining up C/C++ comments, (I tried pasting an example, but the web interface removes all the spaces and it needs to be monospaced and I cannot set any formatting...), I am used to (in other editors), selecting the white space before the // with the mouse, then hitting the Tab key, At this point, your editor decides to be helpful and indents the entire line.
This has NEVER been what I want. If I have a selection within a single line, especially if it is white space, and I type a Tab, I want the Tab to replace the selection, please. I can see this could be useful with multiple line selections (though now we have column select there is an easy way to do that), but for a single line this is just very annoying.
I spend much of my editing life within Visual Studio, and also within Scintilla-based editors, such as the one we implement in our products, so my views on what is ergonomic are somewhat biased, but any chance of changing this? I find your editor more comfortable now we have column selects, but this is one of the reasons that I still find myself doing larger edit tasks in VS or Notepad++.
