Is there a way to reformat a multi-line list into a single line, and vice-versa? Follow
Given this code:
const x = [
Is there a way to quickly reformat it (with a keystroke) to this?
const x = [2, 3, 8];
And also take a single line like the one above and break it out into multi-line, too.

I believe that actual question was "how to switch between such formatting (both ways) at any time" -- something similar to how "Toggle Case" sort of actions work.
Andriy is right. I'm looking for a quick key command that will toggle.
I see. Then the answer is simple - no, where is no way to do this
Would be a handy feature. Any plugins available?
No idea TBH -- I personally know none.
That'd be a nice feature!
Yep agreed... Came here looking for this feature. Would be very handy as it's something I often do manually, both ways.
The closest solution I know of is to bring array elements onto as few lines as possible. Highlight the lines you want to bring in, then Ctrl-Shift-J . To avoid having the formatter distribute array elements one per line again, put
before the code you do not want to have auto-formatted and
move a list to 1 line, you can use join line. put the cursor on the first item, and press ctrl-shift-j.
To split the list, you can use find and replace with regex option. Higlight the list, then find the delimiter, and then replace the delimiter with delimiter\n .
BTW, the delimiter can be a space.
Thx a lot Scott !
For singlelining code, I often do Search & Replace with regex: '\n\s*' => ''
For reverse action, I use code formatting, it does most of the job well.
I'm surprised that is still not a thing. I have created an issue for that https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WI-47023 You can vote for it if you're interested
There's a handy action `Ctrl+Shift+J`, which joins following lines into the one with the cursor. It's not exactly a toggle, and only works one way (joining), but it's better than nothing.
Ah, Ctrl+Shift+J that is handy. Still would be really nice to have the full feature, especially with the option to wrap around at the right-margin. This is probably #1 on the list of repetitive actions that I have to do manually all the time.
Vladimir One could just do Ctrl+Z or Cmd+Z to do the opposite. There you have your semi-toggle.
For 'long into wide' you can add a nice key binding to clone caret (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/rider/Multicursor.html#add-delete-clone-caret)
Once you've done that, clone a caret for each line in the list, navigate to the end of all lines simultaneously and hit backspace to collapse it onto one line.
Frustratingly it's a one way operation
I began using the Realigner plugin for this purpose.
I had some trouble with the shortcut key for split (Ctrl+Alt+S) on Ubuntu 20.10. I just went ahead and used the functions directly from the menu. They are located under the `Edit` tab.
If it is still actual, I found another solution.
So, switch to single line is pretty simple, select lines and press ctrl + shift + j (already discussed here).
To split a single-line object follow the steps:
Hopefully this method will help other people looking for a similar solution.
Vitaly's solution (or a slight variant of it) works great for a similar situation. In working with Vue.js, sometimes the attributes inside html tags start to build up and I want to move them to separate lines for readability. You can select the spaces in between the attributes and press Enter/Return, and bingo!. I've been looking for an easy way to do this for long time!
This works for method signatures:
late to the party, but I leave the default formatting for json on and do a regex search and replace. I just replaces all of the new line characters with nothing. then it is just replace all "\n" with nothing in the search box and cmd l to put back the break.
