I thought it was just the tab key? is your question how do i indent or making square brackets?

How to do indent. It would be nice to be able to do it to larger masses of text thats already written in code... If I use the tab key on each line then its easy to get it all mixed up. I thought...

The course says to use command +square bracket to this...

Maybe I´m complicating things here:-)

Ah right im not sure my self how to do it on a large block of text just single lines.

Well if you have a square bracket symbol on your keyboard you should be able to do it in combination with either command or control button.

If you use an editor such as Sublime Text (you should) you can press CMD + ] to indent and CMD + [ to outdent selected text. Many other editors support this shortcut. If it doesn't work, you could always use SHIFT + CMD + / to search the menus for an "Indent" option :)
