A quick tip on how to surround a selection with quote or brace in IntelliJ.
If you wish to be able to easily surround a selected text with quote or brace you have 2 options I know about. You can create a Live Template in
surround group and then call it with either
Ctrl+Alt+j or you can configure
Smart Keys properly to achieve it.
You can find this option in
IDE Settings > Editor > Smart Keys > Surround selection on typing quote or brace. When this option is selected and you type quote (single or double) or brace (curly, square, parentheses , angle) whilst the text is selected, it will be automatically surrounded with either quote or brace. Pretty handy.
