I just downloaded JB 2.0 b1 (2018-01-07) onto new Windows 10 laptop and the Auto-Indenting is not working. (But now it is remembering my Font preferences for the editor, which I had reported was not working on my old laptop.) BTW, this time I set files to the suggested folder in the Setup app.

Did you set it in Preferences and restart?

Yes, several times... unset/reset...

Also I am getting a square zero character when I try to use shift + tab.

The name suggests it will automatically format the code and properly indent it. But It does not do that. It simply preserves indentation level when enter is pressed.Without it the cursor goes back to the line start on pressing enter.

Enable Auto Indenting - This feature causes the Just BASIC editor to copy the level of indenting of the current line to a new line when Enter is pressed. It also has some support for back-tabbing.

As to ShiftTab I don't believe that is supported. It will Tab backwards if you press backspace so you can move between indentation levels reasonably well.

OK I guess that is way it worked with JB v1.01, funny I never noticed shift + tab before and just automatically used backspace.

Sorry, I must have confused it with another editor with real Auto Indenting I've been using lately.

Notepad++ is excellent tool to work with JB code!

Not just block indentations and undo them, can do the same with case and PLUS a Spell Checker!

I think you can add custom language extensions as well, something to check out.
