Wrapping and Braces
In this tab, customize the exceptions, brace placement and alignment options that IntelliJ IDEA will apply to various code constructs on reformatting the source code. Check the results in the Preview pane.
Right Margin (columns)
In this field, specify the number of spaces required to the right of an element. If you accept the Default option then the value from the global settings is used.
- Default - choose this option to use the Wrap on typing value from the global settings.
- Yes - choose this option to use the value from the Right Margin field.
- No - if you choose this option a line can exceed the value specified in the right margin.
Keep when reformatting
