New CLion 1.1 EAP: Select and Use Your Favorite Code Style

Hi all,

A preview build for CLion 1.1 (141.2144) is now available for download. Patch update is available from CLion 1.1 first EAP build.

The first EAP delivered many new code style options to reflect your desired guidelines more precisely. With this new build, we are offering something even more impressive!

While configuring a code style scheme for your projects, you can now apply settings from one or several well-known guidelines:

Please note that the last three options include only the braces placement rules.

To apply these styles, go to Editor | Code Style | C/C++ settings, find the Set from… option on the right-hand side of the window and select the preferred guideline scheme there:
Changes will be highlighted in the preview window and a Reset option will appear. (There’s a small issue with it right now – Reset doesn’t appear immediately, but any action in the settings windows triggers the proper event.)

This build also addresses an unpleasant bug in the debugger with the option “Hide out of scope values” which also hides this pointer in Variables and Watches views. Find tge full list of fixes in our tracker. Download the EAP build now and give it a try!

Happy developing!

    Are you planning to support C++14 in the editor? (Currently, v1.0.5, some C++14 code compiles, but the syntax highlighter highlights fake errors). When?

      Yes, we do plan. You can upvote and follow this: to get the updates. No exact estimation are clear for now. Won’t be done prior to 1.1 for sure.

    Good job guys! The new formatter is excellent! And finally, I can indent visibility keywords and members independently! 😀

    For people who are working with the google code style, here’s a plugin to run on the fly.

    Please, add an option to use lowercase characters in the filename, independent from the classname (I’m talking about a new calss dialog). Linux filesystems are case sensitive.

    Please add an option to view variable values in hexadecimal format. It’s very useful when handling with pointers.

    Would you please support Adobe’s Source Code Pro font in all IntelliJ products? Currently its bold font makes the whole string unreadable.

    Build 141.2144 failed to debug with bundled llvm: step forward at the breakpoint will cause the debugger hung.

      Could you please share a sample project or at least a debug log – collect debug logs (Help | Configure Debug Log | Add #com.jetbrains.cidr.execution.debugger) while starting a session and send to us (logs can be found in Help | Show Log) to clion-support at We’ll have a look at what’s going on there.

      What OS is that?
      If it’s Widows, MinGW than it could be related to
