Tabs and Indents
|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, PyCharm uses spaces instead of tabs.
If this check box is selected, PyCharm inserts tabs for indentation and reformatting.
PyCharm 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,
PyCharm 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 size||In this text box, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.|
|Indent||In 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 indent||In this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the
Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted at the next line if
there is a line break in the code fragment.|
|Keep indents on empty lines||If this check box is selected, then PyCharm will keep indents on the empty lines as if they have contained some code.|
If this check box is not selected, PyCharm will delete the tabulation characters.
