Tab key stops working?


#1

When editing files within Cloud9, the tab key shortcut (indent) will occasionally stop working. For example, when editing a JavaScript file, this randomly seems to happen. The only way I’ve found to fix it is to close the file and re-open it. There are also certain types of files for which it never seems to work at all. For example, I have a SCSS file open right now, and the tab key does not work at all. Nothing I do makes it work, either. Oddly, outdent (shift+tab) does work.

I’m seeing this behavior in two separate browsers - Chrome and Firefox - so I don’t think it’s an issue with having a weird plugin installed.

Has anyone run into this? What might be causing this and how can it be fixed?


#2

Yea, I’ve found this too.

Can’t figure it out.


#3

are there any errors displayed in the browser console?


#4

No, there are no messages displayed in the console. Clicking Edit -> Line -> Indent from the menu bar works as expected, though. Frustrating.

This smells just like a browser issue. Have you seen this happening in incognito mode (with no extensions running) as well?
