Surround code fragments
IntelliJ IDEA provides standard templates for surrounding code fragments with various constructs based on the language of the source code. This includes
if...else conditional statements,
for loops, combinations of
try...catch...finally, XML tags, folding regions, and other constructs.

Select the necessary surround statement from the list.
You can edit code templates that are used in the surround statements. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, go to .
