When in the Method editor, you can use the arrow keys to move from line to line quickly. Using the arrow keys to move across several lines is quicker than clicking because the editor delays evaluating the line for errors.

4th Dimension evaluates the text of the line and applies the appropriate display format, when you press the Return/Enter key or select another line with a mouse click. 4th Dimension also indents each line to its proper level in relation to the preceding line when programming structures (for example If, End if) are used.
