If you have landed here searching how to switch off auto formatting of code files in Visual Studio, you are either a code purist who does not like the formatting the IDE is performing or you are like me editing a large auto-generated class file (due to unfortunate situations) and Visual studio hangs or crashes on you every time you do a small change. The good news is there is an option in the IDE to switch feature off.

Well, I just switch off auto-formatting, hopefully that will help some. I did Edit, Advanced, Format Document and the problem with wild formatting is still there. Seems to me VS used to do a lot better job than it does now.
