Tabs and Indents

ItemDescription
Use tab character
  • If this check box is selected, tab characters are used:
    • On pressing the Tab key
    • For indentation
    • For code reformatting
  • When the check box is cleared, IntelliJ IDEA uses spaces instead of tabs.
Smart tabs
  • If this check box is selected, the part of indentation defined by the nesting of code blocks, is made of the tabs and (if necessary) spaces, while the part of indentation defined by the alignment is made only of spaces.
  • 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 sizeIn this text box, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.
IndentIn 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 indentIn this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.
Keep indents on empty linesIf this check box is selected, then IntelliJ IDEA will keep indents on the empty lines as if they contained some code.
If this check box is not selected, IntelliJ IDEA will delete the tab characters and spaces.
