Tab Override

Tab Override allows tabs to be entered in textarea elements. It is available as a standalone JavaScript library, a jQuery plugin, and a WordPress plugin. In WordPress, it affects the HTML editor on admin pages. The WordPress plugin was originally written by Mathew Tinsley.

Some features include:

  • Tab insertion via the tab key
  • Tab removal via the shift+tab key combination
  • Multi-line selection support
  • Adjustable tab size
  • Auto indent
  • Custom key combinations (use any key and modifier keys for tab/untab)
  • Cross-browser compatibility
