Why does DevStudio format my XML when I switch editors?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Environment

Red Hat JBoss DevStudio 10.x

Issue

When switching editors in DevStudio, XML formatting can be lost. Reformats happen without user input, can these be disabled?

Resolution

At this time there is no way to stop the automatic re-formatting. An RFE has been filed to change this behavior, if it is approved perhaps things will change in a future release.
