Earlier when I wanted to paste several lines of source code or table as the code sample, I used to manually insert spaces before every line (or paste several spaces to the first of line) to indent it.

Jim proposed a better approach below: First to paste the code, then highlight it and mark it as the code sample.

But isn't it better that if we have already started a code sample area, the site itself supports copy-paste and automatically indents the pasted lines?

Paste it, highlight it, and click the {} button to turn it to code. Or Ctrl+K. – yoozer8 Oct 9 '12 at 15:09
@Jim :-) Nice trivial idea, thanks! – Ali Sharifi Oct 9 '12 at 15:12
In its current form, this requests is dupe of this one – Shadow Wizard Oct 9 '12 at 15:32
@ShaWizDowArd I don't think so, I am not talking about increase/decrease button, but just Automatic indenting the pasted lines while already started a code sample area. – Ali Sharifi Oct 9 '12 at 15:37
