  • Smart Indent - select this check box to have RubyMine add a new line and position the caret in it, with the indent that RubyMine assumes to be reasonable in the current point of code (indentation is based on the current Code Style Settings).

  • Insert documentation comment stub - this check box defines the behavior on pressing EnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnterEnter after opening tag.
    • If this check box is selected, RubyMine generates a documentation comment stub. For the function comments, this stub contains the required tags (@param tags for each parameter declared in the signature, and @return). Refer to Creating Documentation Comments for details.
    • If this check box is not selected, only the closing tag is generated.
Reformat on paste Use this drop-down list to specify how to place pasted code blocks. The available options are:
  • None - The pasted code is inserted at the caret location as plain text without any reformatting or indenting.
  • Indent Block - The pasted code block is positioned at the proper indentation level, according to the current Code Style Settings, but its inner structure is not changed.
  • Indent Each Line- Each line of the pasted code block is positioned at the proper indentation level, according to the current Code Style Settings.
