Changing indent and tab size in Visual Basic 2008 Express

Minor annoyance in Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition: To change the indent and tab size in Options dialog, Text Editor Basic / Editor node, you have to highlight the number in the field, then type in a new number in the Tab Size and Indent Size text fields. You can't delete the existing value first, then type in a new one.

2-Nov-2009: In Visual C# 2008 Express Edition, in Options dialog, Text Editor / All Languages / Tabs node, you can delete the existing value first.
