I've not tried this with DDS, but it works with RPG - there's a setting in Preferences to control this behavior. Preferences=>Remote Systems=>Remote Systems LPEX Editor and turn on the check-box for "Column sensitive editing". OK - just tried it in WDSC 7 - it's in the same place in RDp 7.6 - and it worked. It is a global setting for the LPEX Editor, you can't choose to use it just for DDS and not for RPG.

I'm not aware of a way to set your own tabs, as with the TABS command in SEU, but I've not tried it either. Column-sensitive editing drives me a little bit crazy, as it stops at every little column along the way - I usually either move to the line above and use Ctrl-right arrow to locate to something already there, or cursor over or mouse to it.

OTOH, inserts within columns can be pretty cool - it doesn't move the stuff in other columns. It's probably fixed by now, but sometimes Replace all seemed not to work completely right. As I say, I've not used column-sensitive editing for a long time now.

Maybe there's a way to set a key-stroke to toggle the setting. Otherwise one can take a few click into Preferences and change as needed. And back again.

when I type A then hit tab and it goes to the function column.
