Make left en right arrow honor spaces as tabs

Hi,

I've seen numerous topics regarding this setting, but most of them where opened over a year ago so I'll try again. This year, the whole company moved to PHPStorm, and recently moved to the PSR1/2 formatting standard. Almost immediately got complaints about the arrow key. Pressing left or right arrow moves the cursor one space instead of 4 spaces. Is this a setting in PHPStorm nowadays? I did found a setting called "allow placement of caret inside tabs" but had no effect (might make sense since spaces <> tabs).

Hello!

I'm not sure why you expect the indentation options to affect the caret moving - they are used for formatting only. See http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-70079#comment=27-226320

Thank you for your response. That issue you referred to is exactly what I would like to see in phpstorm. Not sure why the issue he asked to close the issue since it could be a nice addition? It's status is 'wont fix', but why? :-)
