How to reproduce:
1. Create two lines with text in Writer
2. Select them
3. Press Tabulator
A tab should be added to all selected lines
The selected text is deleted and one tab is added.
This enhancement would be helpful when working with source code in Writer.
LibreOffice Writer, I think, it is not design for deal with source code. Paragraph oriented, do not seems easy find this enhancement implemented.
A couple of extensions can help you:
Maybe other open source editors can help better your purpose, a little search on the net.
Please if you find a good way for your work, close this bug.
I agree with mariosv.
Hope you can make a good choise for a real source code editor, Samuel. Cheers - Cor
I'm not looking for a source code editor. I create documents where source code is embedded and for that reason I need this feature.
The mentioned extensions don't indent the code, they just put some styles on it.

Sorry that I did not get that right !
Wouldn't it be an idea to use a paragraph style with indent, font, color etc? That is how I solve these things.

Not sure if *expected* is right, but - true is true - when you select more lines with bullets/ numbering, the behaviour is as requested..
Set the version to 330 - it's obviously inherrited from OOo.
Still a valid request (though IMO not so useful ;))
I would like to upvote this issue. It's a major issue when working on any document. For example, when I have a numbered paragraph that is indented and I want each line to match the indentation of the first line. I can't go and tab each line, that's frustating.
I was helping a friend on his brochure handout for mass, and I ran into this issue and was embarrassed by it, because I was the one who installed LibreOffice on his computer.
