    Make sure you use tab to indent the IF and ELSE sections. I am assuming this is Python. You might have to paste your code snippet.

    "unindent does not match any outer indentation level" this the t shows always, i have tried in different ways.

    >>> x=35 >>> if x==35: print 'true' else: File "<pyshell#3>", line 3 else: ^ IndentationError: unindent does not match any outer indentation level

    well, the way you copy-pasted it I can't tell how your indents are written, the >>> is throwing me off.

    I hope you're not typing this directly into the shell. Open a new window with CTRL+N and type in your program, then run it with F5. If that doesn't work, copy paste that code here so we can see the indentation properly, the >>> from the shell is making it hard to see what you actually typed.
