Description davelowndes 2014-05-22 21:32:54 UTC
Source code formatting is very important, especially across multi-developer teams. Rather than hunting through user preference files on disk (after Googling I still haven't found the right file, possibly it means my defaults were never changed?) it should be possible to reset source code formatting to the default for either one language or all.

We use NetBeans default formatting as the standard across our development team so to have this feature helps our developers ensure they are following standards.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
NetBeans IDE 8.2 Release Boss
