Description Joseph Hanna 2013-07-21 22:16:39 UTC
Description of Problem:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create #region in text editor. Ensure blank lines before and after #region & #endregion. 
2. From menu, choose Edit --> Format --> Format Document

Actual Results:

Blank lines are stripped out before and after #region and #endregion lines.

Expected Results:

1. Preserve the blank lines that are there
2. Provide settings in Preferences pane to specify blank lines before/after these statements.
3. Leave 1 blank line before/after these statement lines

How often does this happen? 
Every time I save (which also formats the document)

Additional Information:
It makes the code hard to read.

I added the option & defaulted to 1 blank line

Thanks Mike!  Any idea when this will be released?
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-07-23 01:25:37 UTC
No not really since the fix came too late in the beta cycle - I don't think that we add new options to the next release. Therefore it will take a while :/.
Comment 4 Joseph Hanna 2013-07-23 01:28:21 UTC
Ok - thanks for fixing it anyway.

Today we have checked this issue with:

XS 4.2.3(build 29)
ML 10.8.5

Now this issue is not exist, code formatting not removes blank lines before/after #region and #endregion statements in XS.

Hence marking this as Verified.
