Description tp21 2014-08-07 18:53:19 UTC
There's not an option to align chained methods in:

Tools -> Options -> Formatting -> Java -> Alignment -> Multiline Alignment

so when you do that you get what is set in:

Tools -> Options -> Formatting -> Java -> Tabs And Indents -> Continuation Indentation Size

Here's an example here of what I mean with formatting:

would be nice with the streams api?

It's becoming more so important with the stream API. I could have sworn that NB used to support this at some time though, alas installing prior versions I can't seem to find it.

Working more and more with some fluent APIs, this lack of formatting is quite unfortunate; Even more when the team's members can do it with other IDEs.
