Is code formatting working for everyone else?

I've been having a problem where I haven't been able to use the code formatter to format code properly. Its something new introduced in the EAP. Things that I want to just be "next line" are coming in "next line shifted" and I've found no way to correct it. I recently installed the EAP (3193) on a brand new machine (thought previously that maybe it was some old settings), but nope - the EAP insists on formatting some things incorrectly.

There was a post saying that "code formatting" code has been rewritten in
hte EAP.

Post bugs in the tracker.

I've just tried it on Build 3200.

Initially it seemed to work, the braces are placed where
I want them to and I almost breathed a sigh of relief...
That was too soon, though:
Java doc is now reformatted wrongly. It seems that the
first is placed correctly, but all subsequent lines are
using the indent value set for code lines (so thery're
4 spaces in more than they should be and the '*' are not
aligned.)
Also, in one case, a file which was otherwise formatted
correctly, had a try line indented one level too many.
And, at least in my installation, I cannot open the Global
Code Style or the Project Code Style dialogs -
I get an exception straight away,
while waiting for the settings to load (an NPE attempting
to read the settings file, I think).

I've now voted on Marcus Brito lodged issue on the matter.
I'm so used to using the reformatting capabilities in
IDEA that these bugs really drive me crazy.

Cheers,

Bonny
