Wing's debugger works best when you run code in a file; you can use the 
debug probe to interact with your program when it is stopped at a 
breakpoint or at an exception or paused.

To respond to your other two questions: imports should work if modules 
one.py and two.py are in the same directory and 1 of them is the file 
run in the debugger.  This works because the 1st item in sys.path is the 
name of the directory they are in.  When running in the interactive 
shell, sys.path is set up differently so they may or may not import.

If an indent manager is failing to convert a file, please send the file 
to support at wingware.com so we can see if there's a bug.
