I'm currently in the process of upgrading over 30 DSL's which already have formatting classes written for them. I've spent some time writing formatting2 classes and while I like the new style for formatting, I was wondering if it's possible to instead force the language to use the old formatter?

This would be extremely helpful in my case as it would avoid a whole set of testing I would have to do otherwise.

Thanks for your time!

What you you exactly do when the new formatter is used?

Did you set generateStub to false for the formatter in the workflow

Here is the only formatter oriented config in my workflows.

formatter = {
	generateStub = true
	generateXtendStub = true
}


The above code is found within the StandardLanguage block if that's important...

I apologize for the weak question, I could explain the events which lead it to being asked but instead I'll just say thank you very much.

EDIT: For the sake of completeness I'd like to add that I also had to add the binding to the old formatter to the runtime module of each DSL in question. Working great now. Thanks again.
