In Qt Creator "Tab size" and "Indent size" options do not work! How I can to set needed tab size for cpp files in Qt Creator IDE?

When I update tab size and indent size settings in Behavior tab, changes never take effect in code editor. Tabs are always set to 4 spaces. I want to set it to 2, but Qt Creator will not let me, it will not honor settings I specify.

qt creator set tab indent for cpp

In Qt Creator IDE tab settings are for non-code editors, i.e. it for plain text only. For code editors, including C++ editor, you must to configure your coding style settings in C++ item of left menu of Qt Quick options. For reducing confusion in version 2.8 (and next) has some text explaining that in the editor tab settings.
