    Question - IDE Code Formatting

    Hi, I have searched through keybindings looking for a key combination that would auto format code similar to CTRL+K + CTRL+D in Visual Studio. Is there such an option and if not is it on the road map for a future enhancement? Thanks.

    I have just discovered that you can add your own code snippets in which is great. I have quite a few I would like to add. My question is how do I get it to separate out into sub-sections so I don't have a monstrously long list I can't even see to the bottom of. Thanks in advance.
