Below you can find the biggest improvements available in WebStorm 2022.1 EAP #3. Please try them out and share your feedback with us:

Running Prettier and other tools on Save Document

With WebStorm, you can run several actions and tools upon pressing ⌘S / Ctrl+S. Previously, this functionality worked only if you had this shortcut mapped to the Save All action. Starting from v2022.1, it will also work if the shortcut is mapped to a similar action, Save Document.

You can find all of the actions that can be run on save in Preferences / Settings | Tools | Actions on Save.


Updated Markdown Editor Floating Toolbar

To make it easier to format Markdown files, we’ve reworked the floating toolbar that appears on text selection. Besides the new design, the toolbar now offers list creation functionality and a dropdown menu that allows you to select header styles.


The toolbar is customizable, so you can fill it up with the options you need. To do so, go to Preferences / Settings | Appearance & Behavior | Menus and Toolbars | Markdown Editor Floating Toolbar.

Other notable changes

Here are some other notable changes in this build:

  • The debugger console now supports emoji (WEB-54763).
  • You can now specify custom Docker Сompose flags like --rm or --service-ports in your Node.js run configurations (WEB-54160).
  • On Big Sur, the shortcut for switching editor tabs will work as expected (IDEA-261595).
