I'd like to set the size of each indent-level to be 4 characters. I'd want the tab-character (in a file) to jump to the next 8-character boundary.
I'd expect the tab key (when pressed on the keyboard) to tab to the next indent level (4-characters), not the next tab-character level (8-characters). I'd want the whitespace on each line to have a tab-character for every 8 spaces needed, followed by 4 more space characters if the indent-level is not a multiple of 8 characters. This matches a style policy used in the FreeBSD project, for instance.
I can do this with preference settings in XCode, but I don't see how to do the same thing in SublimeText2. Sorry if I'm just missing something which should be obvious!
