bug#8189: 24.0.50; indenting region with TAB deactivates region


From: Gregor Zattler
Subject: bug#8189: 24.0.50; indenting region with TAB deactivates region
Date: Sun, 06 Mar 2011 17:22:03 +0100

This is a wishlist bug, since it seems quite usefull if it was possible
to indent a region several times without the necessity to reactivate the
region:

 - Start Emacs (emacs -Q)
 - Set text-mode in the *scratch* buffer. (text-mode).
 - Select the first 3 lines.
 - Type <TAB>

What I was expecting:
 - The selected lines move to the next tab-stop.
 - The region remains active, so that I can repeat the indentation
   several times in a row.

What I see:
 - The indentation of the lines depends on emacs version
   (regression bug filed as bug #8187, see
    http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=8187)
 - The region is deactivated.

This bug report is about deactivating the region.  I don't know if it's
easy to fix this but it would be nice if it would be possible to indent
the region several times by simply hitting TAB several times.

Thanks for your attention, Gregor
