intellij shortened code

How do I stop the arrow thing from showing up. I know that, if I click on it, it will expand but I would prefer that it be expanded by default. I'm using OSX Mountain Lion.

This sounds like a IntelliJ setting option. What settings have you tried to change? – Ramhound Sep 12 '13 at 15:55
Please always include your OS. Solutions very often depend on the Operating System being used. Are you using Windows, Linux, Unix, OSX, BSD? Which version? – terdon Sep 12 '13 at 16:28
