    public class MuchBetter
      public static void main(String[]args) 
        System.out.println("A "quoted" String is");
     "'much' better if you learn"
      "the rules of "escape sequences.""
      "Also, "" represents an empty String.
      "Don't forget: use \" instead of " !
       "'' is not the same as ""

    I am very new to mac and just purchased my first macbook pro ever.
    My question is:

    1. Is there a way to indent the 5 statements below the System.out.println to match the indentation of the System.out.println itself all at once without having to indent each line?

    2. Also is there a way to copy and paste System.out.println("") around the five text statements? For example, can you copy and past before and after a text sentence?

    Please advise. Thanks.

    No this is not homework, just a sample basic code i've written to exemplify what I'm trying to ask on mac. I just don't know how to navigate and manipulate text as well on a mac efficiently yet.
