I have tried to copy/paste my code into my code editor on my MAC. However, it auto indents everything. Is there a way to un-indent multiple lines at once?

what is your editor? –  Marcus Oct 12 '12 at 6:47

This is not a programming question according to the FAQ. You should ask this on SuperUser (or read the manual of your editor), because it's not Python, it's your editor that does the indenting. –  Tim Pietzcker Oct 12 '12 at 6:56

This really depends on what's the editor you are using. If it's vi/vim, just type :set paste before pasting the code.

If you are using python IDLE just ctrl+H-> check Regular expression ->Enter ^\t -> Replace All .... done :).

This will mess up indentation everywhere else in the file... –  Tim Pietzcker Oct 12 '12 at 7:04
    
@TimPietzcker:- This is weird, try using find and it shows starting indents but at replace all its removing everything...some sort of bug... –  perilbrain Oct 12 '12 at 7:06
    
Is this IDE the one hat comes with macPython? Right now, I'm using an app called CodeRunner –  user1740280 Oct 12 '12 at 7:07

Try command+[ or command+] after you've selected the lines That at least works for me in IDLE.

What is the IDLE? The one that comes with MacPython? –  user1740280 Oct 12 '12 at 7:09
    
IDLE is one of the editors. python.org/getit Does that command+[ trick not work in your current editor? –  Atticus29 Oct 12 '12 at 7:12
    
Hmm, It just worked in my current editor, instead of Ctrl-c I used the copy function on pastebin, but I'm gonna use the other IDLE. Does it come with pygame? –  user1740280 Oct 12 '12 at 7:18
