This will automatically indents your code so as, you will be able to do coding in faster way as compare to previous interface. You can click on the Format Template option to wipe out the indentation of an entire template.

From the image below, you will see a small, grey arrow (►) next to line number 4. If you look at the line number below line number 4, you will see 1181, which simply implies that the editor has saved me from scrolling down through 1177 lines of code.
