Tabs and indents

Item Description
Use tab character
  • If this check box is selected, tab characters are used:
    • On pressing the TabTabTabTabTabTabTabTabTabTabTabTabTab key
    • For indentation
    • For code reformatting
  • When the check box is cleared, RubyMine uses spaces instead of tabs.
Smart tabs
  • If this check box is selected, RubyMine inserts tabs for indentation and reformatting, but fine alignment to a necessary column is done only via spaces without replacing them with tabs. This is done in order to preserve visual representation of the source code, when the Tab Size is changed.
  • 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 in case of a construct break.
Keep indents on empty lines If this check box is selected, then RubyMine will keep indents on the empty lines as if they have contained some code.
If this check box is not selected, RubyMine will delete the tabulation characters.
Use indents relative to expression start Use this check box to switch between the two possible indentation behaviors:
  • If this check box is not selected, the blocks of code will be formatted against the closest ancestor block that starts on a new line.
  • If this check box is selected, the blocks of code will be formatted in columns.
