Resharper: Please indent my shit by 1000 miles, please! kthxbye

So... Today, while at the Harmony Hackathon, I took a few minutes of yak shaving time to figure out the location of the setting that had all of us at the hackathon cursing resharper from time to time. If you want to see an example of why we were cursing, see a screenshot below from visual studio for one of the methods we were working on.


Resharper has a setting that tells it to indent the crap out of array and object initializers, and the default is "please resharper, indent my shit off the screen so far to the right that I run out of scrollbar space if I have more than two nested lambdas or objects". Today we took to rectifying this problem in our configuration.

The setting is under formatting style / other / other / indent array, object and collection initializers. You can see it in the screenshot below. Uncheck it and stop bitching about resharper moving your shit 1000 miles to the right ;)
