Thanks, this is very helpful. I don't know why they removed Tidy but this should be a basic feature of an expensive text editor these days!

I believe it was removed due to Tidy not being updated, and having "ownership" issues. If you look at the Tidy webpage, there is a gap from 2008 to 2015 when it sat idle.
