Common Code Style Options: Wrapping and Braces
Wrapping and braces
In this tab, customize the code style options, which PhpStorm will apply on reformatting the source code. The left-hand pane contains the list of exceptions (Keep when reformatting), and placement and alignment options for the various code constructs (lists, statements, operations, annotations, and so on) The right-hand pane shows preview.
Alignment takes precedence over indentation options.
Right Margin (columns)
Use the Hard wrap at field to specify a margin space required on the right side of an element. If you select Default option then a value of the right margin from the global settings is used.
Wrap on typing
Use the Wrap on typing settings to specify how the edited text is fitted in the specified Hard wrap at. You can select one the following options:
Default: in this case PhpStorm uses the Wrap on typing option that is specified in the global settings.
Yes: in this case PhpStorm uses the value specified in the Right Margin field.
No: in this case this option is switched off and a line can exceed the value specified in the right margin.
Use the Visual guides field to specify multiple right margins. You can leave a default value or enter the number of spaces for your margin. If you want to specify several margins, enter numbers separated by comma.
Keep when reformatting
Use the checkboxes to configure exceptions that PhpStorm will make when reformatting the source code. For example, by default, the Line breaks checkbox is selected. If your code contains lines that are shorter than a standard convention, you can convert them by disabling the Line breaks checkbox before you reformat the source code.
The wrapping style applies to the various code constructs, specified in the left-hand pane (for example, method call arguments, or assignment statements).
From this list, select the desired wrapping style:
Align when multiline
If this checkbox is selected, a code construct starts at the same column on each next line. Otherwise, the position of a code construct is determined by the current indentation level.
Select this checkbox to have the specified character or characters moved to the next line when the lines are wrapped.
'else' on new line
Use this checkbox to have the corresponding statements or characters moved to the next line.
