Great idea! A minor piece of feedback - I have modules names and list items that are being broken up because they contain "if". For example, I have the word "specific" in one of my module names. Maybe a condition in the code to only indent when a space exists before and/or after the keyword?

Hi @BenHilgendorf ,

 

Thanks for the feedback and nice catch! I will infidelity take this feedback and add it to my testing routines for future releases. 

 

This was a quick fix and V1.1 of the extension was just published. It searches for "IF ", " THEN ",or " ELSE ". The IF cannot have a space before as some formulas start "IF...." , but the space after should have the same effect as your solution. 

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi @rmonique 

 

This is amazing! I can't believe I've only just come across this!

Really helpful! 

But it is also true if the formula is too long then it should be broken down as @DavidSmith says! But the compromise that needs to be made is the sparsity! 

However as model builders we need the tools for efficiency! 

 

Thanks,

 

Usman
