How are you peeps dealing with editing python code inside a digital asset?

When I edit the file live in the scripts tab, it makes me want to pull my hair out.  Hitting "commit" scrolls the file to the top of the page, and hitting a new line does not auto-indent.  At some point somewhere indents get messed up and it won't compile and I end up "alt+e" editing it to restore sanity.  However, editing it this way causes the usual scrolling to the top of the file, and makes life miserable.

I thought I could use the "Save as file" button to save the script out, then edit, load it back in using the "Filename" section on the right side of the tab, and then "reload all files", but this does not seem to do anything.

Am I missing something?  Is there an easier way?
