🖖 Hello Noam,

Thanks, I've changed it in my init.el file, but the way I was doing it before 
also worked; `C-h f electric-indent-mode` in 26.1 doesn't include any of that 
for me.

Migrating Infestive Bugs !!

The documentation you refer to is about the function, i.e., 
`(electric-indent-mode)` or `(electric-indent-mode nil)` will enable 
the mode. Use `(electric-indent-mode -1)` to disable it. 
Using setq on the variable won't do the right thing, as mentioned in 
its documentation: 
Setting this variable directly does not take effect; 
either customize it (see the info node ‘Easy Customization’) 
or call the function ‘electric-indent-mode’.
