  • Shift+Tab and move code?

    I the old days, when I coded in QB45, I used to be able to highlight a block of text, press tab and have the entire block of text that I highlighted tab over one tab selection. I like to keep my code need and readable with spacing. I can't figure out how to do this in PB. Is there something I am missing or just nadda an option? I am using the PB editor..
    There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation.

    I never use PBEdit but, I just tried and it works for me.
    PBEdit v8.04.0042 here.

    I don't see any obvious/relevant option in the Options... menu, so I can just confirm it work but can't help much.

      Works here as well. Didn't have a clue PBedit could do that!!!

        Just Highlite and Tab to indent, Highlite and "Shift + Tab" to move back an indent.

        added bonus with PB8 is you can block comment with <Cntrl>Q to comment, and <Cntrl><Shift>Q to uncomment blocks.....much better than the old VB way that you had to do each line separately

          He may have version 7.00 which didn't have these features.

            I am sadly finding this option missing in other languages I am currently testing a PB Dll in.....VB6 being one of them that I have to comment out each line separately.

            Yet another reason I love PB over the other languages
