Turning Off HTML Formatting in BDS2006

Posted by Kirby Turner on June 21, 2006

I often rave about BDS2006 but not today. Today this fine IDE is really annoying me. I’m editing some ASP.NET User Controls (.ascx) using the markup editor. Every time I save the changes the editor reformats the HTML to unformatted HTML. Not only that it is inserting new HTML into the file such as empty <p></p> tags! It’s annoying me so much I’m considering re-installing Visual Studio 2003.

I don’t recall having this problem with BDS2005 and admittedly this is the first time I have done any major ASP.NET work in BDS2006. Anyone know of a way to turn OFF HTML formatting in BDS2006?
