I already replied to your colleague about the same inquiry. Here is my answer:
"I am afraid that the indentation you are aiming is not achievable with our Formatter. The current implementation is based on architectural decision bred of the idea for better visualization of the chained methods. We and most of our users think that chained method invocations are more readable when indented toward their parent and not the leftmost element.
If you really want such feature I will ask you to add it at our feedback portal where we can track the reaction of our community and decide whether it is valuable for our users."
