Well, I'm reading a couple books on Python now, and in almost all of the examples they don't have proper indents, so when I copy/paste the code (from the PDF to the IDE) the indents are totally screwed up.  I'm thinking that there should be some control, or setting, for this.  I hope.  :)

Perhaps if you share a screenshot of your PDF and the name of your PDF
viewer, we can help you more.
