[Feature Request] Preferences > Code Generation


Just posting here in lieu of track, but I think it a new Preferences group "Editor > Code Generation" (which could sit after "Code Editing") would be useful:

Code Generation

  • Code Completion
  • Postfix Completion
  • Live Templates
  • File and Code Templates
  • Auto Import
  • Intentions
  • Smart Keys
  • Emmet

I appreciate there may be structural or legacy reasons why this may not be possible, but I often find myself thinking in terms of how WebStorm will generate code for me, then having to pick through all the preferences to find the item I need.

Having them in one space would make more logical sense.

Please feel free to file a request for this feature to youtrack, https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA

But note that people mostly find such changes in the UI they got accustomed to quite irritating as they break their habits, so I'm not sure it will be fixed any time soon
