Tabs and Indents

Tabs and Indents

Item Description
Use tab character
  • If this checkbox is selected, tab characters are used:

    • On pressing the key

    • For indentation

    • For code reformatting

  • When the checkbox is cleared, AppCode uses spaces instead of tabs.

Smart tabs
  • If this checkbox 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 checkbox 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 checkbox is available if the Use tab character checkbox is selected.

Tab size In this field, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.
Indent In this field, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use tab character checkbox is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.
Continuation indent In this field, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use tab character checkbox is selected) to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.
