IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

Configuring Project and IDE Settings

Project settings refer to a set of preferences related to resources, file colors, version control options, code styles, etc. Project settings are stored with each specific project as a set of xml files under the .idea folder.

You can configure project settings on the two possible levels:

  • The level of a template project. The settings defined for a template project, apply to any project you create.
  • The project level. The settings defined on this level apply to the current project only.
