Go to the cleanup profiles settings page:.
Click Save in the Settings dialog to apply the modifications and let JetBrains Rider choose where to save them, or save the modifications to a specific settings layer using the Save To list. For more information, see Layer-based settings.
Select the scope where you want to reformat XML doc comments:
Set the caret anywhere in the file to reformat XML doc comments to the file.
Select one or more items in the Solution Explorer to reformat XML doc comments in the files under these nodes and their child items.
Press Ctrl+E, C or choosefrom the main menu.
