            Bug ID: 51412
           Summary: [clang-format] AlignConsecutiveMacros fights with
                    Visual Studio and resource.h
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Formatter
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

clang-format AlignConsecutiveMacros feature is excellent, but it causes real
problems when using the resource editor in Visual Studio

A resource.h file will be "Align" with an alignment of 40

// Microsoft Visual C++ generated include file.
// Used by MyTest.rc
#define IDP_OLE_INIT_FAILED             100
#define IDP_FAILED_TO_CREATE            102
#define ID_STATUSBAR_SHOW               108
#define ID_STATUSBAR_TEXT               109

if it encounters a long symbol it will push it out


Every time we make a change in the resource editor in visual studio the
resource.h will be written out (and its not auto clang-formatted)

If you check all files for "clang-formatting" then resource.h will fail

It would be good to have some AlignConsecutiveMacros options so that
clang-format didn't fight against this format

Some sort of "AlignConsecutiveMacrosMinMaxAlignment: 40"
