How to set indentation options on NetBeans6.0

I had an e-mail about a week ago saying that NetBeans 6.0 was available; I usually use Eclipse but thought I would try NetBeans again. It seems to default to the sort of identation where you get the { at the end of the line; you can even get lines like thisI found the window where you can choose the Java indentation engine, but couldn't seem to alter its options. How can you get { to appear on a line on its own, etc?

Tools / Options / Java Code / Tab Formatting / Category "Alignment and Braces" / Tab Braces Placement / choose 'New Line' in the three dropdown menus.
And with Alt+Shift+F you can reformat your code so that effects takes place.
