The Borland IDEs have long supported various "smart" indentation
features, which can each be individually turned on or off (see the third
one for the answer to your specific question):
* Auto indent mode - Positions the cursor under the first nonblank
character of the preceding nonblank line when you press ENTER in
the Code Editor.
* Smart tab - Tabs to the first non-whitespace character in the
preceding line. If "Use tab character" is enabled, this option
* Backspace unindents - Aligns the insertion point to the previous
indentation level (outdents it) when you press BACKSPACE, if the
cursor is on the first nonblank character of a line.
There are a number of other tab-related options as well.
