Shift-Tab

I had to uninstall my Resharper 2.5.3 and Visual Studio 2005 environment,
and then reinstall everything.

So I have a freshly installed Visual Studio 2005 and Resharper 2.5.3 on my
system

The first time I selected some text and hit Shift-Tab to un-indent it,
Resharper presented me with a dialog that gave me two options, both of which
were wrong.

Help?!?


How do I get my Shift-Tab back?!? Resharper shouldn't TOUCH that key
combination! Ever! You cannot remap it with the Keyboard Options (if you
try to press Tab or Shift-Tab in the keyboard shortcut box, it just moves
the focus, rather than recording the keypress combination).

I vaguely remember there being a thread about this a while ago, but I can't
recall it now... so I can't figure out how to get my keypress back.

Hello Paul,

With ReSharper 2.5 there indeed was a problem with Tab/Shift-Tab which was
fixed in 3.0. However, you CAN remap it back in Visual Studio. In keyboard
customization, you should select "Text Editor" with mouse, that click mouse
in shortcut field and then hit Shift-Tab (or Tab) once. I don't know why
it works this strange way, but I myself accidentaly found it some time ago
:)
Another way would be manually creating vssettings file with only one key
mapping in it and importing it into Visual Studio.
