Task Builder Formatting Preferences 

Task Builder formatting preferences allow you to modify how actions that represent a block of steps the Loop or If actions, are formatted in the Steps pane. You can choose to automatically add closing steps to those that require one (i.e. Loop actions should automatically be followed by End Loop actions or If actions should automatically be followed by End If actions) or you can choose to add such steps manually as you construct the task. You can also decide upon whether those blocks of steps should be indented and what the indentation value should be.
