If you need to support multiple views of your data, it is usually a
good idea to separate storage and display. You can, for example, keep
data in custom properties or in a data stack (or external text or
database file) and use substacks (they are just normal stacks except
that they are in the same file as a mainstack -- read about this in
docs -- to have only a single file to handle) to display the data. If
your data is a database-type data, you could have one stack to
display columnar report and another to view one record at a time.

It is still the same. Try quiting Rev to prove it to yourself. Altuit
has a plugin that makes versioning (and thus rolling back) easy.

Sounds like field's scroll is not updated if there is really nothing
funky about the field content. I would first check for invisible
characters, then try to reset scroll.

Not that I know of. What's wrong with automatic indentation? It seems
to work fine.
