Prettier: "Run on save" option missing

Answered

In the Prettier - Help documentation it says: "To run Prettier automatically when a file is changed, open the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, go to Languages and Frameworks | JavaScript | Prettier, select the Run on save checkbox, and specify the pattern that defines the set of files to be reformatted every time such file is saved. "

I don't see the "Run on save" checkbox in my installation:

Mike,

Which version of the Prettier plugin do you have installed?

The plugin says: 193.6911.14

I just noticed that on the installed plugin panel, there is a link to Webstorm Setup instructions on the Prettier.io website.  Those instructions differ quite a bit and involve setting up file watchers.  I'm starting to think maybe the option will appear when I update to IDEA 2020.*, does that sound right?  I couldn't figure out how to check older IDEA docs to see if they were different.

So that's a matter of the versions compatibility. Having IntelliJ 2020.1.1, I got the Prettier in 201.7223.58 version with such a feature.

Ok, thanks for confirming.  I'll look forward to that feature when I upgrade.
