Edit Menu -> Advanced -> Tabbify / Untabbify Selected Lines option is not working
I select 10 lines of code and then selected "Tabbify Selected Lines" menu from "Edit->Advanced", but its not working, similary "Untabbify Selected Lines" as well.
FYI, The uppercase and lowercase converts everything into uppercase, if we have some option to convert only keywords to uppercase then it would make the code look good and also please assign some shortcuts for "Tabbify Selected Lines" and "Untabbify as well, because those are options which we regularly use, so using the menu is time consuming so if we have shortcut it would save lot of time and easy to use as well

Thank you for reporting this issue. We will mark it as a product issue and request dev team to investigate it.
This is regarding the connect issue 357143. Kindly note that the function “tabify” converts all tab length white spaces to a tab. So there is no visual indication and tabify does not mean to move selected text by a tab. Say there are 4 white spaces in a tab, then tabify would look for 4 consequent white spaces in the selected text and replace them by a single tab character. Similarly untabify replaces a tab character with equivalent number of white space characters.
I hope this explains the behavior. We are closing the issue as by-design.
