I paste into the gedit text editor and that' s ok (on the left).

But when I paste into vim (on the right) i get the weird 'too much indenting' issue. Also it's not immediately fixable with selecting all text and using =

This for python code btw, i will check ruby now - done, ruby doesn't have issue, but then again ruby outdents with ends anyway so different approach in that language anyway.

When you open up vim type the following

:set paste

and when before you exit

:set nopaste
