Overview

The source editor should auto indent on pressing return/enter, on paste and when inserting auto generated code. This depends on language and user preferences. Most other editors use either a fixed set of rules or a set of options to configure the rules. This is semi automatic indentation. These options are either too simple or too complex. And they only allow one set of rules, so editing sources with different policies is difficult.

Fully automatic indentation tries to guess the rules from the surrounding code.
