Aqua 2024.1 Help

Sticky lines

The sticky lines (or sticky scroll) feature enhances your coding experience by maintaining the visibility of parent elements as you scroll through the file, offering immediate context to your code. In a file with a complex hierarchy of classes and methods, this feature ensures that the signature of the currently viewed method and its containing classes always remain at the top of the editor.

You can also click any of the sticky lines to scroll the editor to the corresponding declaration.
