    • I already have :set backspace=indent,eol,start. That's still not everything I want. Backspace does back up past autoindent, which is okay, but that's not the only thing I want. I want Vim to treat tabs as four spaces when it saves the file, but as single characters when I move around in or edit the file.

      Did I read the help text incorrectly?

      • Ah, OK. There’s no builtin way of doing that to my knowledge. I could swear I saw a way to do this with scripting in either the scripts or tips section of vim.org [vim.org], but I can’t unearth it now.
