Tabs and indents
|Use tab character||
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 in case of a construct break.|
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.
Keep when reformatting
Use the check boxes to configure exceptions that PyCharm will make when reformatting 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.
These settings do not influence the number of blank lines before the first and after the last item.
