- At the Project level, settings are grouped under the Project scheme, which is predefined and is marked in bold. The Project style scheme is applied to the current project only.
- At the IDE level, settings are grouped under the predefined Default scheme (marked in bold), and any other scheme created by the user by the Duplicate command (marked as plain text). Global settings are used when the user doesn't want to keep code style settings with the project and share them.
Default Indent Options
|Use tab character|
|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.|
|Keep indents on empty lines||Use this check box to keep the same indentation on empty lines as on lines containing code when the Reformat Code command is used.|
|Detect and use existing file indents for editing||Use this check box to detect code style settings in the currently edited file on the fly. In this case, when you open a file in the editor, indentation that was used in that file is preserved automatically. For example, if tabs were used for the indentation then in copy, paste or enter actions, tabs are used. Also, note that if you use the Reformat Code command then CLion applies default code style settings and uses them in the editor.|
In this area, specify the markers to limit code fragments that you want to exclude from reformatting, see more in Reformatting Source Code. In the source code, formatting markers are written inside line comments, see Commenting and Uncommenting Blocks of Code.

|Formatter off:|| In this text box, specify the character string that will indicate the beginning of a code fragment which you want to exclude from reformatting. Type a character string with the |
|Formatter on:|| In this text box, specify the character string that will indicate the end of a code fragment which you want to exclude from reformatting. Type a character string with the |
|Regular expressions||Select this check box to use regular expressions instead of specifying the formatting markers explicitly. CLion matches formatter on/off markers using the regular expression specified instead of the exact string.|
