i am using Sublime Text Build 2181 on Mac OSX and i seem to be unable to figure out how to configure sublime to always use spaces for indenting. I've not modified "Settings - Default", but "Settings - User". But i have still to always switch to use "spaces" instead of "tabs" in the status-line of the editor, manually, no matter if i start editing a new file or if i edit a file, that was already saved with "spaces" for indentation, only. below, my settings -- am i missing something? I am pretty sure, that sublime loads the settings file, because the other settings work -- like the color-scheme, the rulers, "draw_white_space" settings, etc. thanx very much in advance!
file: "Settings - User"
// Sets the colors used within the text area
"color_scheme": "Packages/Color Scheme - Default/Solarized (Light).tmTheme",
// Set to true to turn on the indentation guides.
// Set to "all" to draw all white space
// Columns in which to display vertical rulers
"rulers": [80, 160],
// The number of spaces a tab is considered equal to
// Set to true to insert spaces when tab is pressed
// If translate_tabs_to_spaces is true, use_tab_stops will make tab and
// backspace insert/delete up to the next tabstop
// Set to false to disable detection of tabs vs. spaces on load
// Set to true to removing trailing white space on save
// When enabled, pressing tab will insert the best matching completion.
// Enable auto complete to be triggered automatically when typing.
