Description -Silver- 2015-11-17 16:02:05 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_60
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.60-b23

Reproducibility: Happens every time

Good afternoon,
in my company is used the following code convention (that is probably taken from the Oracle suggestions at this address:

Line wrapping for if statements should generally use the 8-space rule, since conventional (4 space) indentation makes seeing the body difficult. For example:

    if ((condition1 && condition2)
        || (condition3 && condition4)
        ||!(condition5 && condition6)) { //BAD WRAPS
        doSomethingAboutIt();            //MAKE THIS LINE EASY TO MISS

    if ((condition1 && condition2)
            || (condition3 && condition4)
            ||!(condition5 && condition6)) {

Could you kindly add to the formatter an option to manage this particular if statement treatment?
Thanks and best regards,

Giuseppe Tin
