Smart Tab

When the Smart Tab command is used at various positions in your source code, Source Insight moves the selection to the next “field”. A field is an interesting position, depending on the current context. Smart Tab lets you move the cursor around easily, especially when typing new function calls.

When the Smart Tab option is on (Preferences: Typing), then pressing the regular Tab key will invoke the Smart Tab command. The Simple Tab command simply inserts a tab, and avoids the Smart Tab behavior. Therefore, if you have the Smart Tab option turned on, you can use the Simple Tab command to occasionally override the Smart Tab behavior.
