Trying to use the shiftcolumn plug-in from the current Windows installer.

In my text (Perl source code), I selected a few files of source, then used Shift Right to shift the selected text right. The result was something different.

Selected text was:

# If at end of current file, force Perl's line counter to reset.
close ARGV if eof;  # Not eof()!

Result was:

c # If at end of current file, fore Perl's line counter to reset.

close ARGV if eof;  # Not eof()!

Also, pressing Cntrl-0 did not do anything.

    I'm not sure what the plugin is supposed to do (that tab/shift+tab doesn't do,) but I can confirm the behaviour seems to either randomly scramble the text or do nothing (just using the Tools menu items).

      From reading the plug in description and having used a similar feature in a
      pay-ware IDE, I think you are supposed to be able to select several lines
      of code/text, then increase/decrease the indentation.
