No. One of the fundamental, core features of the product is that it only makes the smallest possible change (e.g., micro editing) to your code when you make a change in the design view. It will never touch existing code or existing formatting unless it absolutely has to. The tool never regenerates the entire class, so making a code gen pref change will only effect new code.
