Hello Norbert,

there also must be some common sense about it but in my case lazyness

I type without thinking about indentation and let the pretty printer
take care that every method is formatted the same.
(context menu in the code pane, more, pretty print, *after* accepting

Sometimes I don't like the output but I dislike even more to do it
manually or to change the pretty printer. What I do manually is insert
blank lines between code phrases. This more in Lisp than in Squeak.

I believe that a consistent look is more important than an optimal
