           Summary: KATE tab key mode
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: CVS
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel at kdevelop.org
        ReportedBy: jonsmirl at yahoo.com

Version:           CVS (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

In the configure editor dialog for KATE,
on the indentation tab,
'tab key mode if nothing selected' group,

There should be a third option: Insert single TAB char

This will let you use tab with a selection to ident, 
and still insert a single tab char when editing files
that need this capability.

CTRL-I works around this but not everyone knows that
CTRL-I is equivalent to the TAB key.

Also, this is the way the MSVC IDE works.
