    Hi, what I am really lacking is the tab function in the ppc editor to make a nice indentation as in the desktopeditor. I have to use the spacebar to make a layout and this is corrupted when synchronizing to the desktop. Why not use the tab for editor use and use the pen for jumping to the subwindow?
    thnx

    I agree, this would be a nice addition for us that like to program on the device :)

    All the best / Björn

    BTW, you can use Tools - Untab on the device to replace the tabs with spaces and Edit - Retab on the desktop to return the tabs.

    Thanks Erel,
    I had already found that untab inserted spaces on the device inplace of the tabs but I didn't realise that the tabs could be re-inserted on the desktop.

    Great job ;)

    I dont understand. Is there a way to use tabs to make an indentation (jump to the right) on the device? If so I missed the point of your explanation....

    You can convert the tabs in your code to spaces in the device (one tab = one space) and vice versa on the desktop.
