Use this page to enable or disable specific smart keys and to define which actions you want to be invoked automatically.
|Home||When this checkbox is selected, on pressing Home, the caret is positioned at the first non-space character of the current line. Pressing Home subsequently moves the caret from the Smart Home position to the first column and back.|
|End (on blank line)||When this checkbox is selected, on pressing End in an empty line, the caret is positioned with the indent, which IntelliJ IDEA assumes to be reasonable in the current code point (indentation is based on the current Code Style Settings).|
|Insert pair bracket||Select this checkbox to have IntelliJ IDEA automatically add a closing round or square bracket for each typed opening round or square bracket, respectively.|
|Insert pair quote||Select this checkbox to have IntelliJ IDEA automatically add a closing single or double quote for each typed opening single or double quote, respectively.|
|Reformat block on typing "}"||If this checkbox is selected, then, on typing the closing curly brace, the enclosed code block is reformatted automatically, if the formatting of this code block does not match the selected code style.|
|Use 'CamelHumps' words||Select this checkbox to have IntelliJ IDEA discern separate words within CamelHump names. Words within a name should start with a capital letter or an underscore. This option impacts some editor actions, for example: |
IntelliJ IDEA also provides similar actions that work in a mode opposite to the one selected in the Use 'CamelHumps' words setting:
For example, If Use 'CamelHumps' words is enabled, the action Move Caret to Next Word in Different "CamelHumps" mode moves the caret to the end of word regardless of uppercase characters in this word; if Use 'CamelHumps' words is disabled, then the caret moves to the next CamelHump within this word.
These actions have no default keyboard shortcuts, and are not included in the menus but you can invoke them from Go to Action (Ctrl+Shift+A):
You can bind them with the shortcuts of your choice as described in the section Configuring Keyboard Shortcuts.
|Surround selection on typing quote or brace||If this checkbox is selected, the selected text on typing a quote, double-quote or brace, will be surrounded with these characters. If this checkbox is not selected, then the typed quotes, double-quotes or braces will replace the selection.|

and the cursor is in front of the word
If the option is on, and you press Enter, the fragment will change to:
Otherwise, the fragment will change to:
Qualify object on code completion. The selected option defines how the name of an object is inserted in the editor when using the code completion suggestion box.
