In a lot of cases I have my open preferences for things like tab spacing in my own projects. I set these in my user file settings file. On the other hand projects I work on may have their own specifications (2 spaces for tabs, etc).
The current documentation on indentation does not say that it looks in the project file for these settings. I think they need to be added with project settings being last.
