Tab Button should indent text

The tab button on a keyboard doesn't indent text like it would in every other text tool in adobe suite.

please make the tab button indent paragraph text.

        but there is no indent in html so why should there be one in a web prototyping tool? true there is margin/padding left, but then you can just put "indented" content in its own frame and move it the required number of pixels.

        Setting text indents is needed as much as text justification options!
        Its a bit weird not to have such an obvious basic text formatting options in UI developing software.

        Pasting tabbed text from Illustrator ignores all tab formatting (tabs indents lost).
        Would be nice to have tab control support including distance and alignment type.

        Yup, I totally agree! But I wanted to mention that after trying some different things to see if anything worked, if you hold the Option key down (Mac) while hitting tab key it will tab over. just can't figure out how to make adjustments though (like in the tab dialog menu in InDesign).

        We would really benefit from having text indentation here. It makes a lot of sense carrying some of the typography UX across the CC Suite.

        Currently if you press the tab key when in a text area it selects the container, it would be good if when you pressed the tab key it tabbed the text across as one might expect.
