How to exclude css files from auto formatting in IntelliJ

Tags: css,intellij-idea,formatting,code-formatting

Problem :

We're using the auto formatting feature of IntelliJ to format our code whenever a commit to git is made.

The formatting works well for us except for our designer who's not happy with the way how IntelliJ formats his CSS files. Is there a way to deactivate auto formatting for certain file types?

Solution :

Since IDEA 13 it is possible to deactivate formatting with

/* @formatter:off */

and reactivate with

/* @formatter:on */

But you need to enable that first in Settings -> Code Style -> General -> Formatter Control
