I turn all that auto formatting stuff off. It slows me down and having text flicker and faff about like that just looks too "broken".

It isn't like any typos will get through because they are still highlighted in red.

I also recommend the same with Visual Studio. I see more people fighting with the incorrect autoformatter than actually writing correct code.
