IntelliJ IDEA 14.1.1 Help

Generating and Updating Copyright Notice

In this section:


IntelliJ IDEA enables you to insert or update copyright notices in the files of your projects, according to the copyright profile that is applicable to a corresponding scope.

  • If a file does not belong to any scope with a copyright profile assigned, the default copyright profile is used.
  • If the No copyright option has been set as the Default Copyright Profile in the Copyright settings dialog box, no copyright notice will be created or updated and IntelliJ IDEA will prompt you to configure a profile to apply.
