True, but Eclipse and IntelliJ are IDEs, primarily for developing Java 
code. Although such a feature has been requested, it's not high in the 
list of priorities.

A global setting for tabs-replace-spaces, or tabs-are-X-spaces-big 
covers all file types, hence the suggestion for standardisation. That 
way, people with clever text editors can still use that default, as can 
people with IDEs.
