Problems with comments

+12 votes
Every time I try to format my code, it puts each word from my comments on a separate line. Is this normal, or should I be doing something else?

I am having the same issue, I think it's just how java wants to format it since the code is a little long. I don't think it's that big of a problem as long as you try and line up the comments.

If your comments are extending way off to the right side of the screen, then when you do Source->Format, it will do that.

You may want to put those comments on their OWN lines, instead of putting them on the same line as the line of code that you're talking about.  

You can also use Source->Correct Indentation, if you just want it to fix the tabbing, without messing with other aspects of how your code is formatted.
