Description
The TabSize OpenTool can automatically change the tab size when you switch between files.

Maybe you have the following problem:
You want (or must) use a tab size of 4 for some projects and every time you look into the JDK sources, you have to change the tab size because the JDK sources use tab size 8.

Then this OpenTool is the solution for you.

It allows you to specify tab sizes for single directories or directory hierarchies and automatically changes the tab size when you switch between the files.

The status bar for a file shows the used tab size. If the standard tab size is used, then the status bar shows no tab size.


USAGE

To specify a tab size for a directory hierarchy, create an empty file named "~base_tabsize=4" in that directory. "4" is the tab size. Of course, you can use any other tab size if you want. The tab size is then used for files in that directory and all subdirectories.

To specify a tab size for a single directory (without subdirectories), create an empty file named "~tabsize=4" in that directory.

Specifying the tab size using files has the advantage that you don't loose the setting when you copy or move your directories. It's also a good idea to add the "~base_tabsize=4" and "~tabsize=4"
files to your source code control system.
