Tabs and Indents
|Use tab character||
If this check box is selected, tab characters are used:
- On pressing the Tab key
- For indentation
- For code reformatting
When the check box is cleared, RubyMine uses spaces instead of tabs.
- If this check box 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 check box 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 check box is available if the
Use Tab Character check box is selected.
|Tab size||In this text box, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.|
|Indent||In this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the
Use Tab Character
check box is selected) to be inserted for each indent level.
|Continuation indent||In this text box, specify the number of spaces (or tabs if the
Use Tab Character check box is selected) to be inserted between the elements
of an array, in expressions, method declarations and method calls.|
|Keep indents on empty lines||If this check box is selected, then RubyMine will keep indents on the empty lines as if they
contained some code.|
If this check box is not selected, RubyMine will delete the tab characters and spaces.
|Use indents relative to expression start||Use this check box to switch between the two possible indentation behaviors:
- If this check box is not selected, the blocks of code will be formatted against the closest
ancestor block that starts on a new line.
- If this check box is selected, the blocks of code will be formatted in columns.
|Keep line breaks||If this check box is selected, line breaks are honored when reviewing Ruby files in the editor.|
|Align multiline list items||If this check box is selected, the calls in sequential lines are aligned against
|Align right parts of assignments or hashes||If this check box is selected, the assignments and hashes are aligned against values.|
|Indent when cases||If this check box is selected, the when-else clauses are indented against case.|
If this check box is not selected, the when-else clauses aligned against case.
|Spaces around curly braces||If this check box is selected, the opening curly brace is followed by a space, and the closing curly brace is preceded by a space.|
Spaces around arrows||If this check box is selected, |
=> characters are surrounded with spaces.
|Keep blank lines in declarations||Specify the number of blank lines in declarations. |
|Keep blank lines around methods||Specify the number of blank lines around methods to be retailed after reformatting.|
|Add parentheses around method arguments|
