Little grey, vertical lines in the code. Looks organized


#1

I noticed that when codecademy puts the code in in a lesson there are little, grey, vertical lines that show everything lining up. However, when I write the code those lines don't appear. Is there a way to make those lines show up?


#2

you must start a new line like this:

then keep hitting the spacebar to make spaces. they don't show up on here though.


#3

Use the tab key to indent then you don't need to keep on hitting space bar :slight_smile:


#4

I'm using the tab key but nothing I do makes these great little organizing lines appear. Anyone know the magic?


#5

Tab key indents only.

The lines will appear by pressing enter.

Go to a line with code press enter and you will see it :slight_smile:

It may also vary by browser. On OS X, I can see them with Chrome and Safari but not Firefox.

Thanks @albionsrefuge I didn't even think of that :wink:

It took me a while before I noticed it.
