Check the settings on the Formatter page under the ILE RPG preferences. I
think it uses those rather than the Automatic indent preference. Why they
have essentially the same setting in 2 different places is beyond me.

It does appear that they could make the different selection types more
consistent with each other. I suspect it's one of those things that hasn't
been touched since the first implementation.

Nice hint that works nicely for me at a first glance, but does not use the
number of blanks specified for "Automatic indent" of the "ILE RPG"
preferences page. At least for me it uses 2 blanks for indention, although
I specified 3 blanks for "Automatic indent".

Last but not least Ctrl+M seems to use block selection so that I have to
press Alt+U to unselect the block. So the there are 3 steps for indenting a
block:

1) Ctrl+M to select the source lines.
2) Ctrl+Shift+F to format the selected lines.
3) Alt+U to remove the selection.

The good news are that Ctrl+Shift+F also works with stream selection. On
the other hand that raises the question why Alt+7 and Alt+F8
(indent/unindent) do not work with stream selection. They only had to pick
up the line numbers where the selection starts and ends in oder to know the
lines to indent/unindent. Simple and intuitive.

It is pretty much annoying that I always have to remember what selection I
have to use for what function: Block, line, rectangle or stream selection.

Sigh - Either I am getting old or stupid or it is because I never used
Code400, WDSCi and RDi for editing fix format RPG (except the D-specs, of
course).

After selecting the block with Ctrl-M, Ctrl-shift-f to format the block
takes care of the indenting nicely.

Hi

I know that this tricks aren't really about indent/unindent, but i think
they are very useful for to be able see the begin/end of block
if/do/select....

Ctrl + M in the begin/end of the block this mark all block and you can see
all.

Ctrl + Shift + M in the begin of block and you go directly at end
statement. And reverse too.
