Tabs in Text Block Get Converted To Spaces

I am able to type in Tabs during creation of the Text Block but each Tab gets converted to 8 spaces immediately. Is this by design or a Bug?

Probably by design - I don’t know what a tab character would actually signify in a Rhino text block…

When you think about it, a tab character would need a tab setting to tab to. I don’t think Text Blocks have any provision for setting tab locations. Or am I misinformed?

That’s what I was implying above…

It would be useful to have something like that for tabulated data, without having to resort to multiple text blocks. I believe that several design/engineering disciplines would benefit from this.
