Use this page to associate copyright profiles with the specific scopes within your project.


Tooltip and shortcut


Default project copyright

Use this drop-down list to specify the default copyright profile at the project level. The default profile applies to those project files that do not belong to any defined scope. The default profile also applies when no specific profile-scope combinations have been created.

By default, WebStorm suggests No copyright.

Note that unless you have at least one copyright profile and scope, the controls below are disabled.

Up/Down Alt+Up/Alt+Down

Use these icons or shortcuts to move the selected item one line up or down in the list.

The order of scope-profile combination is important, because if a file belongs to several scopes, these scopes are checked upside down. So doing, the first scope where this file belongs, is declared the proper one, and its copyright profile is used.
