Override Java code formatter to prevent comments with a specific prefix from indenting?


Any way to override the Java code formatter based on the content of a comment? For example let's say I want to prevent a comment from getting indented if it looks like this /*!! blah */ .  I've examined the Formatter API, but I don't see a way to override or filter specific elements from indentation or formatting in general.  Any ideas?

There is no such API for Java. The only way to prevent something from not being formatted (reindented) is to surround a fragment with `@formatter on/off` tags in line comments.
