Tabs and Indents
|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.
- 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.

- No - in this case this option is switched off and a line can exceed
the number that is specified in the right margin.
