strange indentation

Yes, I tried those things, but the indentation didn't clear up as it 
usually does. It's not really that important, but is slightly 
distracting. This is one area where Rev needs to catch up with 
HyperCard's script editor in terms of reliability and speed as well. 
(HyperCard's script editor is much snappier at handling indentation 
changes, and more consistent.)

Overall, I find the Rev script editor a bit clumsy to deal with. Undo 
never seems to work, and sometimes it's hard to get the script editor 
window out of the way while trying to look at other windows within 
Rev (such as the Transcript dictionary).

I hate to sound like I'm carping, because I really love Rev. It's 
better than HyperCard in so many ways, but it would be nice if the 
Rev script editor could pick up some of HyperCard's better virtues 
(like debug mode with the Variable Watcher!).
