How to Gain Control of Formatting?


I am now finding that the unwanted manipulations perpetrated by IDEA's editor when I enter JavaDoc comments is so annoying and counter-productive I've stopped adding documentation comments entirely (!).

Given that IDEA appears not to allow choices I need (freedom from left-margin stars or the option of a tab indent relative to the prevailing indent) and because the "Enable JavaDoc formatting" check-box in Settings | Global Code Style | JavDoc has no effect, is there any way for me to get the editor to leave me alone when I enter JavaDoc comments?
