EditorConfig is overriding code style settings for this file

Hi there,

This means that:
1) You have EditorConfig plugin installed and enabled
2) You have .editorconfig file in your project

By nature, settings from .editorconfig file have priority over (will override) Code Style settings of IDE.

1) If you click on "Dismiss" nothing will happen -- supported settings from .editorconfig will be taken instead of the same settings in your Code Style
2) If you click on "Disable..." the support for .editorconfig settings will be disabled (can be re-enabled again at "Settings (Preferences on Mac) | Editor | Code Style") and only your Code Style settings will matter

There should probably be something letting you know where you can re-enable it from. I accidentally clicked disable and then had to google how to re-enable it.

What would be GREAT would be an option to show the changes the EditorConfig override would change for this file!  When you bring in a code tree from elsewhere with other settings, one doesn't want to override the display of the code without being careful.
