Phpstorm Size

Posted : admin On 1/2/2022

Specify the factor of the point size to define the vertical distance between lines of code in the editor. The default value 1.2 corresponds to the 120% of the point size. You can alter the factor and evaluate the effect in the preview area. Fallback font: Select a font to use if PhpStorm encounters a character that is not part of the main font. PHPStorm is a powerful IDE, with lots of functionality built in by default. While I'd highly recommend using these options to their full extent, there are some things that are never used. Disabling unused plugins can be a start, but disabling inspections has a much bigger impact.

Phpstorm Tab Size

Phpstorm Setup

ItemDescription
Use tab character
  • If this checkbox is selected, tab characters are used:

    • On pressing the Tab key

    • For indentation

    • For code reformatting

  • When the checkbox is cleared, PhpStorm uses spaces instead of tabs.

Smart tabs
  • If this checkbox 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 checkbox 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 checkbox is available if the Use tab character checkbox is selected.

Tab sizeIn this field, specify the number of spaces included in a tab.
IndentIn this field, 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 field, 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, PhpStorm will keep indents on the empty lines as if they contained some code.
If this checkbox is cleared, PhpStorm will delete the tab characters and spaces.
