Before disabling hints:

After disabling hints:


Intellij Idea - global replace (replace all)

Global replace shortcut - ctrl+shift+R


IntelliJ IDEA - set font size for code editor (change font, line height)

  1. Settings
  2. Editor
  3. Font
  4. Set or change font according to your taste

My favourite is settings:

  • Font: Monospaced
  • Size: 12
  • Line height: 1.2


Intellij IDEA - optimize imports on the fly / add imports automatically
