please if there is a way to bring the TAB back in. When you post a reply or a topic in the text box and hit tab it does nothing. Please make it so it goes to post topic or reply or something, I loved this feature however I do love the new box to type in, but the TAB outweighs it.

If you use SHIFT + TAB it will tab out and onto the "Post' button.

Most people only know to use tab.

And really, shift+tab should be a reverse cycle.

I personally like tab to indent text... that is how it works generally. I get annoyed when it moved my cursor out of the input box unless I am filling out a form.

The problem is that you then lose the ability to TAB text in the text editor.

If you really want to tab out, then:

/public/js/3rd_party/ckeditor/ips_config.js

Comment out

config.tabSpaces = 4;

I cant actually find that line and still tabbing doesn't work.

We never had that option before, why was it added now? Tabbing between locations on a web page is standard accessibility functionality, and should be restored.

Additionally shift tab is the generally accepted input to do a tab inside a textarea afaik.

That's an easy one.. if you are typing in anything in ckeditor that requires a tab the old approach tabbed out of the editor. Our heavy programmer-laden forum is chock full of people writing code blocks that necessitate the tab key. For an editor, it should absolutely be there.

They should've put it in the skin editor as well then if they were using that logic.

Actually, we don't even have that ability.

This sentence is tabbed.
Every word here has a tab after it.

That's because in HTML, whitespace is collapsed to a single space. If you do it in a code tag (which generates <pre>, or preformatted text blocks) then the browser won't collapse it, and you'll see the tabs.
