[wingide-users] Backing up one indent level while entering code?John Ehresman firstname.lastname@example.org

It looks like the problem with rebinding Shift-Tab is that the GUI toolkit we're using (gtk) translates this to 'ISO_Left_Tab'. If you bind ISO_Left_Tab to outdent-region in your keymap.normal file, Wing will outdent the line. We're changing the default keymaps to use this symbol and may treat Tab & ISO_Left_Tab as the same key in a future release. In the future, we also may imitate the Python emacs mode and outdent one level if the backspace key is pressed when the cursor is at the end of the indentation (at the first non-whitespace character). Hope this helps, John On Thu, 2001-12-20 at 09:26, Gary Bishop wrote: > Wing IDE looks great! Just what I was looking for. > > But I'm trying to figure out how to best use it.
