I am using the IntelliJ IDEA ide for java coding. By default it produces curly braces on the same line as the function name, like so:

function bla() {

Can i change it somewhere there so that i will do this instead?:

function bla()

From the IntelliJ documentation:

Go to the menu File | Settings | Project Settings | Code Style - Java. Select the 'Wrapping and braces' tab. Set 'Braces placement options' to 'Next line'.

I had to go to File > Settings then search for Code Style in IDEA 2016.1. – Steve HHH May 19 at 19:30
