Tabs and Indents

ItemDescription
Use tab character
  • If this check box is selected, tab characters are used:
    • On pressing the Tab key
    • For indentation
    • For code reformatting
  • When the check box is cleared, IntelliJ IDEA uses spaces instead of tabs.
Smart tabs
  • If this check box is selected, IntelliJ IDEA inserts tabs for indentation and reformatting. IntelliJ IDEA inserts tabs in the beginning of each line until a symbol other than the tab is inserted. After that when you press the tab key, IntelliJ IDEA will enter spaces.
  • If this check box is cleared, only tabs are used. This means that a group of spaces that fits the specified tab size is automatically replaced with a tab, which may result in breaking fine alignment.

The Smart Tabs check box is available if the Use Tab Character check box is selected.

Tab sizeIn this text box, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.
IndentIn this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.
Continuation indentIn this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.

Wrapping

Use this tab to configure wrapping options.

ItemDescription
Right MarginUse these settings to specify a margin space required on the right side of an element. If you select Default option then a value of the right margin from the global settings will be used.
Wrap on typingUse these settings settings to specify how the edited text is fitted in the specified Right margin. You can select one the following options:
  • Default - in this case IntelliJ IDEA uses the Wrap on typing option that is specified in the global settings.
  • Yes - in this case the value in the specified right margin is used.
  • No - in this case this option is switched off and a line can exceed the number that is specified in the right margin.
