I am using Intellij IDEA 10.5.2 with the La Clojure. In Clojure, the quote (') character is accepted and is used in operators such as *' to multiply arbitrarily large numbers. The problem is that IDEA's "Reformat code" operation separates the quote character from its previous character. In the case of this multiplication operator, the result is * ', breaking the code. For example, a *' b becomes a * 'b, which means a completely different thing.

Is there any way to configure the reformatting behavior so to avoid this?
