# How to insert a tab character in sublime text

keyboard shortcutssublime-text-3

I am trying to insert a tab into a document in Sublime Text. I am using tabs for indentation. Usually, I can insert a tab by pressing → Tab. However, sometimes instead of inserting a tab character, this performs a word completion.

It's hard to predict when this will happen, but when I notice it, I then press Backspace                → Tab Backspace

Is there a better way?
