In this area, choose the code style scheme and change it as required. Code style scheme settings are automatically applied every time JetBrains Rider generates, refactors, or reformats your code.
The IDE comes with two pre-defined schemes: the Project scheme and the Default scheme.
In the Project scheme, the settings that you configure apply only to your current project.
These settings are stored in the codeStyles folder under .idea and are shared through VCS together with the project.
The IDE creates the folder after you modify code style settings for your project.
In the Default scheme (IDE-level scheme), the settings that you configure apply to all existing projects that have the Default code style scheme selected.
These settings are stored in the codestyles folder under the JetBrains Rider configuration directory and are not shared through VCS.
If you want to use the project code style scheme as your default scheme, you can copy it to the IDE level. The other way around is also possible: you can overwrite your current project settings with the settings from an IDE-level scheme and share them with other members of your team.
From this list, select the scheme to be used. The predefined schemes are shown bold. The custom schemes, ones created as copies of the predefined schemes, are in plain text. The location where the scheme is stored is written next to each scheme, for example, the Default scheme is stored in the IDE, the Project scheme is stored in the project.

JetBrains Rider lets you configure line separator and indentation options for various languages. When reformatting source code, JetBrains Rider will apply the specified indentation behavior and skip the sections denoted with the special formatting off/on markers.
Use this list to specify which line separator is to be used in files created by JetBrains Rider. The available options are:
Hard wrap at
In this field, specify the number of columns to be used to display pages in the editor.
Wrap on typing
Select this checkbox to ensure that edited text always fits in the specified right margin.
In this field, 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.
Select Detect and use existing file indents for editing to detect the indentation style in the current file and use this style instead of the indents specified in the Code Style settings for the specific language.
In C#, when you reformat a part of code in a file or when code is auto-formatted on editing or pasting, JetBrains Rider can calculate and apply indentation based on the existing indents in the rest of that file.
For files of non-.NET languages, JetBrains Rider displays the indentation information in the status bar of the editor. You can click the indentation information to see the available actions, such as enable or disable this option, and change the current indentation to the ones specified in the Code Style settings for the specific language.
Code style configuration files
Enable EditorConfig support
EditorConfig is a configuration file convention that is used to define and maintain consistent code styles between team members working on the same code as well as between different editors and IDEs that they might use. The styles are saved in INI-like files named .editorconfig, where section names are file masks and properties inside a section define code styles for files matching that masks.Use this checkbox to make JetBrains Rider respect code formatting styles defined in EditorConfig configuration files. For more information, see Use EditorConfig.
Click this button to export code styles from JetBrains Rider settings to an .editorconfig file.
Enable StyleCop support
When StyleCop integration is enabled, settings from StyleCop files (RuleSet and Settings.StyleCop) will override JetBrains Rider code formatting and code syntax styles, and enable corresponding code inspections.
If you use EditorConfig and StyleCop configuration files simultaneously, the EditorConfig settings will always take precedence over both StyleCop and JetBrains Rider settings. This means that if settings from StyleCop files (RuleSet and Settings.StyleCop) do not give desired results, you can always override specific settings using EditorConfig properties.
Do not format
In this field, specify a glob pattern with the names of files and directories that you want to exclude from reformatting, code arrangement, and import optimization.
Turn formatter on/off with markers in code comments
In this field, specify the character string that will indicate the beginning of a code fragment which you want to exclude from reformatting. Type a character string with the
In this field, specify the character string that will indicate the end of a code fragment which you want to exclude from reformatting. Type a character string with the
Enable regular expressions in formatter markers
Select this checkbox to use regular expressions instead of specifying the formatting markers explicitly. JetBrains Rider matches formatter on/off markers using the regular expression specified instead of the exact string.
For example, using regular expressions allows you to have several markers for enabling the formatter and for disabling it. In that case, you can use the following regular expressions:
Reformat again to remove custom line breaks
When this option is enabled, invoking the Reformat Code Ctrl+Alt+L or Reformat File Ctrl+Alt+Shift+L actions the second time after the code has been reformatted will remove custom line breaks.
When the option is disabled, invoking the actions the second time opens a dialog in which you need to confirm removing line breaks first. Click Don't ask again in the dialog to never remove custom line breaks when you reformat code for the second time.
