Hoping for some help with what I believe is a basic problem.

I have a DSL (we'll call it MyDsl), the plugin and generator for which work perfectly. However, some of the methods that are called by the generator cause line breaks to occur in bad spots, such as:

private int

I have assumed that the best way to remove these lines breaks is through the MyDslFormatter.xtend::configureFormatting method. Something like
However, even a basic
has no effect on the code which is produced by the generator.

A breakpoint in the class never gets hit.

What am I missing? Do I need to add something to a config file to cause my formatter to get picked up during the modeling workflow process?
