Yeah, it works to remove two of the tabs, but
since I also don't
Perl I can't tell why it's doing that. And that sort of bothers me,
that it is clearly marked as inserting two, but it actually inserts
So it works when there is text to paste in, but when it falls back to
just positioning the cursor, only two tabs are inserted.
When TM inserts snippets it performs auto-indentation, that is what
causes the extra tabs. And those tabs depend on the current line, so
it will not always be two either. Unless someone knows of a way to
disable the auto-indentation I think the easiest might be to revert
to insert as regular text, and create a macro that calls the command
and is followed by a search that will take care of the selection.
BTW the line with the regular expression will match more than 4 tabs
at the beginning, and will not match if the line does not have a line
feed at the end. This one should work better (untested):
