Multi-line selection and indent is not working for Multimarkdown Composer.

I cannot highlight code samples or lists and adjust indentation as a selection.

When I select a set of lines and press keys to indent (tab?) it removes all the text.

1. Code sample doesn't indent with keyboard shortcuts …
2. Lists don't indent with keyboard shortcuts ...

Actual: It's removing my text when I select and press tab to indent
Workaround: I have to indent each line individually
Expected: I should be able to select lines and indent them as a group (regression)

    I'm on my spare MacBook Pro, so I'm not sure if that makes a difference. My normal has it's keyboard being repaired (finally), since it keeps giving me duplicate bbb's.

    I know you made keyboard binding changes, but I'm confused if I need to do anything, if I hadn't done anything in the past.

    Do you have the preferences set so that tab key indents instead of
    inserting a tab? (Pro Preferences).

    It works fine for me when that setting is turned on.

    1. Yes, the Pro tab checkbox fixes it. Thanks!
    2. Does the "Command" + "]" not work? I thought I saw that in the key bindings file, but I'm a little confused about how that works.

    Cmd+] and Cmd-[ work, unless you have changed the key binding stuff. If
    you don't use those you can turn keybindings off in Pro prefs. They
    both work for me.

    Shift Left and Shift Right are the menu commands to indent and outdent.

    Cmd + ] and Cmd + [ don't work for me.

    I hear an error beep when I try it.

    What keyboard shortcuts do you have for shift left and shift right in
    the menu?

    Looks like it's Control + Command + Right-Arrow.

    Clicking the Keybindings checkbox doesn't seem to change anything that I can see

    I quit the app and relaunched it after clicking on the Checkbox "Use keybindings to update menu bar shortcuts" and now the new "Command + ]" shortcut works.

    Can you refresh that without quitting the app? Otherwise tell the user to get it to trigger.

    Sorry for the delay -- I updated the preferences for the new version to make this clearer.
