Text Property editor tab size

Is there any way to adjust the size of tabs in the text property editor window? I’ve been googling but can’t find it anywhere so my apologies if I missed this somewhere.

No, you cannot. If you want to control the exact spacing, you’ll need to use spaces ):

The text property editor was meant for arbitrary text rather than coding so there are no special features for that. I believe a fixed-width font option was added in a recent snapshot build, but there aren’t any other coding-friendly features.

That’s understandable. Thank you for the answer.

In case you want to write code as a property value, consider writing it in a separate file and using a “file” custom property to refer to it. For such properties, you can right-click them and choose “Open with System Editor” to quickly open them.

Of course, that does represent a little bit of file management that would be nice to avoid if you have many small scripts in properties.
