Add an AcceptsTab property to RichEditBox
In previous UI frameworks, there was a property on RichTextBox that allowed the control to handle tab presses as content to include in the rich text contained in the control. There is no comparable property for the Metro-style RichEditBox. This means developers have to roll their own tab-handling code. It would be great if you could include this into this control so that this common task could be handled without developers doing it themselves.
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.

Yes, and same goes for TextBox.
I'm surprised there is no AcceptsTab property in RichEditBox. Definitely need this property please! Would save time.
