Taming VS.Net IDE


Can anyone tell me how to tame the IDE when it comes to formatting the HTMl for web forms? It seems to put objects all over the place, many on multiple lines etc. Modify it myself to look neater and it reverts it back.

So, anyone know how to get it to produce ok looking code or not change it when I change it? :)

Simple answer: don't use designer view.

I think you may of misunderstood my problem. Nothing disappears, just the way M$ has chosen to let it format code is just awful....

Put the actual code for objects on new lines, you think it could get that right wouldn't u? :)

This bug is so amazing!

I think VS .NET had the code name "Bugsy". :)
