Remove tabs or spaces from empty lines



I know PhpStorm allows the option to remove spaces at the end of a line.

Is it possible to configure it to remove tabs or spaces on empty lines?

Example: I type the following

if (1 == 1) {

Then I press enter twice, and I continue coding...

if (1 == 1) {


The empty line in the middle now has spaces, but I want just an empty line.

You have 2 options here:

  1. Settings | Editor | General, Strip trailing spaces on Save - when it's set to All, all trailing spaces/tabs are removed on Save, including the ones on empty lines
  2. Settings | Editor | Code Style | <Your language> | Tabs and Indents, Keep indents on empty lines: when disabled, spaces/tabs on empty lines are removed on code reformatting
