Enable auto format on save

  • IntelliJ

    Automatically reformat code on save

    1. File > Settings > Tools > Actions on Save

    2. Enable any desired options, e.g.

      • Reformat code
      • Optimize imports
    3. Disable formatting properties files

      (It doesn’t seem to do anything except annoyingly remove blank lines, which can be useful to group properties)

      Reformat code > All file types > uncheck Properties

  • Android Studio: Auto format code in Android Studio/Intellij IDEA

Disable spell checking

File > Settings > Editor > Inspections > Proofreading > under Proofreading uncheck Typo
