shift text left/right ?

a less serious question:

this is something that I really miss in the SPoD editor : the SH command from the Natural MF editor, which shifts a marked block of text left or right a number of positions.

is there somebody out there that has found a way to do this ?


There is no SHIFT editor command, but this is close. Mark the lines you need to shift and press Tab or Shift-Tab to move them to the right or left, respectively. I believe that the amount of shift is based on your setting in Tools --> Options … --> Program Editor --> Tab Stops.

(Thanks to Jerome for pointing out that I dropped off the last link, to Tab Stops.)

The amount of the shift is based on your tab stop settings.

ahh… is it really that easy ? Well, even if it is not exactly as flexible, it’s close enough.

Thanks guys !
