SecureCRT is a terminal emulator, and each TAB it displays on the screen is really only a set of white spaces, whether the space was originally encoded as a TAB or not.

SecureCRT currently has no built-in tool to convert white spaces to TAB characters when copying text.

I've added a feature request on your behalf so that the product director may be able to evaluate it for potential inclusion in some future release. I don't yet have any ETA for when or even if this might ever become available, but if it does we'll let you know.

In the meantime, here is a python script,, that should be able to perform the functionality you desire.

If you map the script to a button on your button bar, simply highlight the text/script you wish to copy/convert, run the conversion script by pressing the button you just created, and then paste the resulting converted text where you wish.
