How do I manually add indentations in scratch ? auto indentation does not seem to be working for me. I have tried Alt+Ctrl+F and right arrow key like on some other text editors.

Is this a bug? any help would be appreciated

You can indent manually in Scratch by selecting several lines and pressing the Tab key, or pressing Shift + Tab. Automatic Indentation should occur, where every new line is inserted with the same indentation as the previous line. Automatic Indentation will not actually indent based on brackets or code you write.
