Indent and tab size in MATLAB 2020a for livescript are working as expected.
You can check this by following below steps
  • Go to Preferences/MATLAB Editor/Debugger Tab Preferences
  • Set Indent size and tab size to 10 or above (to differentiate clearly).
  • Create a new live script file and add this code if a==1 and hit enter.
Vary the indent sizes to get better understanding. Likewise, you can verify for tab option also.
Hope this helps.

I have the problem, that the indentation does not work. (On R2021a)
For example, if I type if a == 1 and then hit enter, the cursor is going to the beginning of the next line instead of indenting the next line.
If I mark this line and hit CTR+I (for Smart-Indent), it works. But I want to auto-indent the new line WHILE typing.
In the App Designer or in normal scripts it works as known.
I checked the Preferences with my colleague but we do not find a difference although the indentation works on his computer with the same Matlab-Version.
Preferences Language
Do you have still an idea what the reason is?
