    I'm using Xcode for a small project right now, and I like most everything about it except for the way it deletes one of my TAB's everytime I end a line in ';' .
    It's incredibly annoying :mad: and I can find neither an option to turn it off or any good reason for it to be. I don't want a removed TAB to unalign my code every time I end a command, and I don't know who would, so somebody must have found the solution. Please, xcode users of the MacRumors forum, ease my strain with a cure for this jaw gritting anomaly that mocks me with every line I write.

    In Xcode's preferences, under text editing, looking for "automatic indent for" and untick ";". You may want to go as far as unticking "syntax-aware indenting".

    The point of it is to align your code, not the other way around. Do you have an odd indentation style that it doesn't agree with?
