Tabs and Indents

Use tab character
  • If this checkbox is selected, tab characters are used for indentation and for code reformatting.
  • When the checkbox is cleared, PyCharm uses spaces instead of tabs.
Smart tabs An indentation consists of two parts. One part results from nesting code blocks and the other part is determined by alignment.
  • If this checkbox is selected, the part that results from nesting contains both tabs and spaces (if necessary), while the part defined by alignment consists only of spaces.
  • If this checkbox is cleared, only tabs are used. This means that after reformatting a group of spaces that fits the specified tab size is automatically replaced with a tab, which may result in breaking fine alignment.
Tab sizeIn this text box, specify the number of spaces that fits in a tab.
IndentIn this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the Use Tab Character checkbox is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.
Continuation indentIn this text box, 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.
Keep indents on empty linesIf this checkbox is selected, PyCharm retains indents on empty lines as if they contained some code. If the checkbox is cleared, PyCharm deletes the tab characters and spaces on empty lines.
