I am a savvy HomeSite user and I'm starting to use BBEdit.  How do I setup BBEdit preferences so I can use the Tab key to indent a block of text, or un-indent it (using Tab+Shift).  This was an easy setting to find in HomeSite, but I can't seem to find it in BBEdit.

It's really easy. Highlight the block of text you want to indent then hit Apple {.  This will tab once, continue to hit { to tab more.  To unindent hit Apple }.  Just like indent, you can keep hitting } unindent.

Sorry I forgot to add the last part.  I'm pretty sure there isn't a way to set Tab to indent a block of text.  You can make up your own key combination if you don't like Apple {.  Under the BBEdit menu, there is an option to Set Menu Keys.  From there, click the arrow next to Text, choose Shift Left or Shift Right, and then click Set.  In that menu  you can set up any key combination as long as it's not in use like Tab.
