Align Text Macro

Post by jussij » Fri Jan 30, 2009 4:43 am

This script below will align code to a given vertical cursor location. specified.

For example assume you code looks like this where | is used to indicate the cursor location:

Code: Select all

        Some |            text
        that      is 
        all    over 
        the           place
Putting the cursor at the | location and running the macro four times gives you the nicely aligned code shown below:

Code: Select all

        Some text
        that is 
        all  over 
        the  place

Code: Select all
