Description yrozijn 2010-11-17 08:54:04 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 6.9.1 (Build 201011082200)
Operating System = Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_22
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 17.1-b03

After updating today, the formatting of braces is broken in Java code. I like to have my brace start at the next line, but suddenly the opening brace appears at an extra indentation.
For example:
I type
if(condition) [enter]
the cursor is on the next line, indented (still ok).
I type an opening brace { and hit enter, the brace remains indented (wrong). The closing brace appears at the correct indentation (i.e. the same level as the "if").

I consider this a P1 priority as it renders the IDE essentially useless and makes me seriously consider switching to something else if it isn't fixed very very soon.

I can verify this as well. It happens when I press enter and then type the brace:

example1 (works ok):
        if(true){<PRESS ENTER>

example2 (works faulty):
        if(true)<PRESS ENTER>

I have to say as well that this is VERY frustrating and is slowing my coding at about a 40% rate.

I found a workaround:
On Windows 7, go to C:\Users\<username>\.netbeans\6.9 and delete all files and folders with the date/time of when the update happened.
On other OS-es, I suppose a similar workaround is possible.
