Suggestion to the Tabifier plug-in

I have the following suggestion for the Tabifier plug-in:
Tabify JavaDoc parameters.

For example:
@param p1 blah
@param p2withALongName blah blah

Should become (configurable minimal number of characters between parameter
name and description):
@param p1 blah
@param p2withALongName blah blah

It will save me several key strokes a day (isn't that a worthy cause...? :)

Hi Amnon,

Sorry for the delay in reply -- was on vacation.

I use an old wrapper plugin (http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/FreeTextWrapper) to accomplish this. Is this what you had in mind? I could incorporate it into the tabifier to reduce plugin clutter.

This is a nice plugin, but not what I meant.

I meant that the @param directives will be tabbed so that the description
always starts in the same place.

The wrapper plugin does align the @param descriptions so that they not only start in the same place, but also flow so that continued lines are identically indented. The plugin is also capable of reflowing the text of the doc comment (we could make that optional) while recognizing delimiters like blank lines or ]]> html markup.

Anyway, I know what you are looking for. Am busy trying to keep up with new EAP releases and enhance the tabifier plugin for several other syntactic constructs. Looking forward to releasing it again sometime soon... -Dave
