I just opened up a new feature request http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-14088 with the title: "Make it possible to disable code formatting rules for usages of fluent interface APIs (such as JMock)"
I would like to get everybody's opinion on the subject.
Do you have experiences about using a fluent API and how did you manage code formatting? What would be the best way to continue using IDEA's automatic code formatting for other parts of the code, without messing up the manually formatted code? Could this be accomplished with external annotations, as I proposed in my feature request?
