Javadoc improvements in IntelliJ IDEA 10.5

We are coming close to opening the Early Access for IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 which we have announced some time ago. So, we are starting a series of blog posts that will describe some additions we are introducing in this new release.

Here is a list of newly added features that simplify working with Javadocs even more. Note that all of them are available in both Ultimate and Community Editions:

  • Smart enter — caret moves to an expected position after pressing ‘Enter’ in situations like the one below:
    /**
     * <ul>
     *     <li>[caret]
     *         [caret moves here on Enter]
     * </ul>
     */
    class Test {
    }
  • Automatic insertion of closing tag — controlled by a corresponding new setting that resides under ‘IDE Settings | Editor | Smart Keys’;
  • Customizable font size — documentation popup font size can be changed on the fly with Ctrl+mouse wheel or via a dedicated GUI control:
