Compact Settings

Fine tune some components' display.

These settings control some components’ display, mainly about their compactness.


Compact Statusbar

The IDE’s Status Bar went through a redesign as well, removing all borders and giving more padding on the top and bottom. This setting allows you to revert back to the default “compact” design.

Compact Table Cells

Just like the status bar, table cells, table headers and list views were also given more padding to resemble more like Material Design’s equivalents.

This setting allows you to revert to the old, “compact” style. This can be useful if you have lots of items and don’t want to scroll endlessly.

Compact Dropdown Lists

This setting allows you to reduce the size of the dropdowns used in the UI to be more compact.

Compact Menus

From version 2.10.2 Menus had also gained more padding just like dropdowns and tables.

As a result, a setting have been added to revert back to the default menus size.


Notes

  • Because the IDE is developed with compact table cells in mind, using “padded table cells” may result of display artifacts in some components. One example is the Python DataView (https://github.com/ChrisRM/material-theme-jetbrains/issues/485). If you are using such features a lot, just enable the “Compact Table Cells” option to solve that problem.
