Calling with negative arg

M-- 4 indent-rigidly RET has no effect here. Bug?


docstring says:

If called interactively with no prefix argument, activate a
transient mode in which the indentation can be adjusted interactively
by typing <left>, <right>, S-<left>, or S-<right>.
Typing any other key exits this mode, and this key is then
acted upon as normally.

That's too complex for such a simple thing.

    Here M-x indent-rigidly RET doesn't indent at all, but sends a

    Indent region with <left>, <right>, S-<left>, or S-<right>.

    That's not as simple as it could be.

    Also, if once selected right, not being asked next time. How to
    left then?

    Probably there is a docu...

    However, IMO a command indenting left or right should not need much
    docu, it should just do it.

    Thus indent-rigidly seems not first choice as a caller.
