Tabs and Indents
|Use tab character|
The Smart Tabs checkbox is available if the Use tab character checkbox is selected.
|Tab size||In this field, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.|
|Indent||In this field, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use tab character checkbox is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.|
|Continuation indent||In this field, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use tab character checkbox is selected) to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.|
|Keep indents on empty lines||If this checkbox is selected, CLion will keep indents on the empty lines as if they contained some code.|
If this checkbox is cleared, CLion will delete the tab characters and spaces.
Use this tab to specify where you want spaces in your code. To have CLion automatically insert a space at a location, select the checkbox 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 CLion will apply on reformatting the source code. The left-hand pane contains the list of placement and alignment options for the various code constructs. The right-hand pane shows preview.
Alignment takes precedence over indentation options.
|Align when multiline||If this checkbox is selected, a code construct starts at the same column on each next line. Otherwise, the position of a code construct is determined by the current indentation level.|
Use this tab to define where and how many blank lines you want CLion 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.
Use this setting to change the case of commands in CMakeLists.txtfile. Note, that for existing code, the changes shall be followed by Reformat Code action: in the main menu, select or press Ctrl+Alt+L. For new code, the changes will be applied automatically. Also, the setting affects the code completion feature respectively: the autocomplete suggests the CMake commands completion following the selected case setting, regardless the case used for initial typing of a command.
