Hi Michael

Yes, there's a key-sequence to reformat lines in RPG - it is a couple control keys and F - like Ctrl-Shift-F or Alt-Shift-F - you select what you want reformatted and use the magic keys - voila!

It does depend sometimes on selecting an appropriate set of lines - like to start selection with an IF - then everything you select is indented relative to the levels dependent on that IF.

Cheers
Vern

Re: [WDSCI-L] Shortcuts Indent/Unindent

Does RDi (9.5.1) provide functions and shortcuts for
indenting/unindenting selected source lines?
Yes!
It may seem a bit clunky but I got used to it.

First, select the lines to indent/outdent with Ctrl-L, not with the
normal Windows stream selection keys. I usually Ctrl-L the top line,
then Shift-Cursor Down to inclusively select lines. Although Cursor
Down to the bottom then Ctrl-L will also include all those lines too.
I'm just so used to Shift-Cursor to select that it's automatic.

Then:

To indent: Alt-F8
To outdent: Alt-F7

To remove the selection, Alt-U

I believe that's Alt+L to start the block selection is it not?

Also, there are other auto-formatting options available depending on the
language you're coding at the time. Isn't it available to select some code
(by any means you choose) and then press Ctrl+F to format--I don't recall
off the top of my head.
