Fill paragraph

Fill Paragraph action is supported for Ruby comments. This action creates soft wraps in comments. To make use of this action, follow these steps:

  1. Place the caret somewhere inside a comment in Ruby class.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the main menu, choose Edit | Fill Paragraph
    • Press Ctrl+Shift+A, in the pop-up frame, type Fill Paragraph, and then press Enter,

Highlight exit points

If you place the caret at an exit point of a function, the other exit points are also highlighted:

ruby highlight exit points

Running the Bundler

On the UNIX-like computers, IntelliJ IDEA suggests to run the Bundler with the sudo privileges, if SDK so requires. For example, Chef DK by default, requires installing gems under sudo:

rm chef sudo

Also, when running commands, IntelliJ IDEA automatically understands from the command output that running with sudo is required, and suggests to re-run this command with sudo.
