Hi Nemo,

I'm forwarding your question to the JDT newsgroup which should be a
better match.

Regards,
Sebastian

This is the original post, thank you Sebastian!

_______________________________________________

I think that my issue is a (rather simple) bug.
When formating multiple fields with "align fields in columns" checked and with comments at the end of the line, depending on the number of characters in that line, the comment come one tab back.

Assume the following code:
public String ONE = "1"; // a
public String TWO = "22"; // b
public String THREE = "333"; // c
public String FOUR = "4444"; // d

When applying formatting, this is what I expect as formated output:
	public String	ONE	= "1";		// a
	public String	TWO	= "22";		// b
	public String	THREE	= "333";	// c
	public String	FOUR	= "4444";	// d

But this is the formated output that I receive:
	public String	ONE	= "1";		// a
	public String	TWO	= "22";	// b
	public String	THREE	= "333";	// c
	public String	FOUR	= "4444";	// d


if you increase or decrease in one the number of characters in the value part (the string itself) the formatting works like expected.
	public String	TWO	= "2";		// b
	public String	TWO	= "22";	// b
	public String	TWO	= "222";	// b



Some one knows if this is a bug or a problem with my setup?

Have you modified any formatter preferences? Using the default options, I am neither getting the code as you are expecting nor as you are getting.
