Note that when a piece of code is selected in the editor, PyCharm suggests the quick fix Adjust code style settings.
Tabs and Indents
Use this tab to specify where you want spaces in your code. To have PyCharm automatically insert a space at a location, select the check box next to this location in the list. The results are displayed in the Preview pane.
Wrapping and Braces
In this tab, customize the code style options, which PyCharm will apply on reformatting the source code. The left-hand pane contains the list of exceptions (Keep when reformatting), and placement and alignment options for the various code constructs (lists, statements, operations, annotations, etc.). The right-hand pane shows preview.
Alignment takes precedence over indentation options.
Right Margin (columns)
Use Right Margin field 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 is used.
Wrap on Typing
Use Wrap on typing 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 PyCharm uses the Wrap on typing option that is specified in the global settings.
- Yes - in this case PyCharm uses the value specified in the Right Margin field.
- No - in this case this option is switched off and a line can exceed the value specified in the right margin.
Keep When Reformatting
Use the check boxes to configure exceptions that PyCharm will make when reformatting the source code. For example, by default, the Line breaks check box is selected. If your code contains lines that are shorter than a standard convention, you can convert them by disabling the Line breaks check box before you reformat the source code.
Use this tab to define where and how many blank lines you want PyCharm to retain and insert in your code after reformatting. For each type of location, specify the number of blank lines to be inserted. The results are displayed in the Preview pane.
|Keep Maximum Blank Lines||In this area, specify the number of blank lines to be kept after reformatting in the specified locations.|
|Minimum Blank Lines||In the text boxes in this area, specify the number of blank lines to be present in the specified locations.|
