I finally installed LiveCode and the latest MC IDE 4.1 (had been
using Rev prior to LiveCode). For the most part it all went smoothly
but I've encountered a really distracting issue.
I opened a project that was in-the-works and the script indent is
awry, making it very difficult to work.
if it is 1 then
else if it is 2 then
else if it is 3 then
else if it is 4 then
else if it is 5 then
If I have not filled in some of the else-ifs yet, those get indented
additionally so that the end result is that the end of the handler is
not lined up with the beginning, even though there are no errors in
the handler. This additional indentation carries all the way down
thru subsequent handlers as well so that every handler after the
empty else-if is so indented that it's halfway across the window.
Sure I could put some bogus space filler in there but that sort of
negates how I work, which isn't from top to bottom. I'm accustomed
to looking for the empty else-if's to fill in the blanks. I'm also
accustomed to creating blank-shells handlers so that I know what
needs to be done.
Is there some way to fix the indents so that the only additional
indents are for script errors, and not empty places that I just
haven't filled in yet? This is driving me up a wall!
