Doesn't IDE auto-indent?

    I thought IDE auto-indents to the beginning of the previous line when you press Enter. Am I wrong? Can I get it to do that?

    It does not autoindent. Many years ago (at least 7) I tried doing that, and received such a barrage of universal condemnation that I removed it. Never to be heard from again until now ...

    Would you consider it again (ITNV, of course)? ... even dumb indentation ... to the beginning of the previous line. It's a real PITA when you're inside a few nested blocks and have to TAB ad nauseum to get to where you want the next line to begin.
