Description David Siegel 2015-07-21 19:41:18 UTC
Shit-tab unindents the current line, unless the cursor is within a string literal, in which case Shift-tab inserts "\t" in the editor.

Shift-tab should always unindent, and should not type "\t" for you.

I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce the reported behavior.

I observed that when I select the string literals row and press the SHIFT-TAB keys the line unindents but when the set the cursor within the string literal and press the SHIFT-TAB keys inserts the "\t" in string literal.
