Bug Description

If you want to test some code actions, you often have to comment out some lines in your code.
It would be very nice if there was a key kombination for commenting out a whole selected code block.

I also use the Eclipse editor for programming in Java, an there is a feature like that.

Maybe this feature would increase the usability of SIKULI much.

I usually indent a block of code (which can be done by select & tab) and add a "def _dummy_func():" before it. You can do this even the code is already in a function or a class.

In Python placing """ (three apostrophes) in the lines before and after the code block does exactly this

this is
a multiline
popup("I am code again")

this might be clearer.

In Netbeans there is a support for that: add/delete comment: which adds or deletes # at the beginning of the selected lines.

This could be easily added to Sikuli IDE, since it is a similar processing like TAB/Shift-TAB.

summary: - [ feature request ] comment out a whole block

This would be a great feature for the IDE. Mostly as a way for beginners to discover the multiline comment that Raiman pointed out.
