You might consider posting questions about C++Builder in the "C++Builder Questions and Answers" section instead of the Delphi section. 


The RAD Studio editor takes a different approach to code editing; it doesn't force you to a strict coding standard as you type but lets you write code free-form. Then, as an option and with a single shortcut key, you can format the entire source with formatting rules you've set up.

My principal IDE is RAD Studio (for Delphi) but unfortunately I also have to use Visual Studio a bit.  I cannot stand the way VS moves my code around or adjusts my spacing while I am typing it.  It is a most unhelpful and distracting feature.
