Occasionally when writing a makefile in CLion, the IDE will insert spaces instead of a single tab. How do I replace those spaces with the required tab?
In general, I want CLion to convert tabs to spaces in my code. However, when writing a Makefile (for gnu make, not CMake), there are places where tabs are required. CLion usually inserts the necessary tabs correctly; but, sometimes it does not. When this happens, how do I get the IDE to leave the tab where it is needed? (Sometimes deleting the spaces and hitting tab works; but, other times it doesn't.)
