IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 EAP8: In-editor Javadocs Rendering and Split Terminal Sessions
IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1 EAP has just been updated. The new build can render Javadocs right in the editor and enables you to create and split terminal sessions, vertically or horizontally, multiple times.
In-editor Javadocs rendering
Reading Javadocs in the editor might be annoying because of all the tags you have to cut through, especially when you need to interact with the reference links and images. This is why we’re adding a way to render Javadocs right in the editor. To enable this new experimental feature, go to Preferences / Settings | Editor | General | Appearance and select Render documentation comments in place:
Now you will notice a new icon in the gutter for any Javadoc. You can use it to toggle Javadocs rendering:
Voila! Now you can read Javadocs like a normal text without any distractions. You can also click the links to go to the referenced web pages, or view quick docs for the referenced topics:
You can also adjust the font size of the Javadoc from the context menu, for better visibility:
Note that the rendered docs use the same font size that is used for the Quick Documentation, so when you change the size either in the quick docs or Javadocs, the change will apply to both features.
Split terminal sessions vertically/horizontally
We’ve also added an ability to split terminal sessions vertically or horizontally so that you can run them side by side. You can invoke the context menu from the Terminal to create, navigate, and close a split terminal session:
That’s it for today!
