Nice find, Bryce. DDS uses default tab stops, in a way, if you turn on "column sensitive editing" if you go up a level from the parsers and click on the checkbox there.

I tried this and find that user-defined tabs don't include editing only within a column, especially when in insert mode. That's a cool feature of column sensitive editing. So one picks the way you find best.

It might be worth submitting a DCR on this, though.

You will see a list of parsers for C/C++, CL, COBOL, DDS, ILE RPG,

C/C++ only use Template, and DDS only has two check boxes for automatic
syntax checking and automatic uppercase. All the others can have User
Defined Tabs. DDS is out of luck.

[WDSCI-L] Tab Stops for DDS on 7.0

Is there a way to set tab stops for DDS source in WDSc 7.0? It gets
when I type A then hit tab and it goes to the function column.
