Automatic Formatting

The script editor can format a script for easier reading. Any generated script (for example, by saving a platform script) is automatically formatted with tabs and returns in appropriate places.

You can also reformat individual scripts that are difficult to read (for example, scripts in which all commands are strung together with no whitespace characters). From the Edit menu, select Reformat Script.

Tip: This command alerts you if your script is badly formed (for example, if your parentheses are not matched).
