Questions:

I have this text

$test1 = 'testing1';
$test1test1 = 'testing1';
$test1test1test1 = 'testing1';
$test1 = 'testing1';

and I would like to align it like this, using tabs,

$test1           = 'testing1';
$test1test1      = 'testing1';
$test1test1test1 = 'testing1';
$test1           = 'testing1';

is there a way of doing this in phpstorm or webstorm ?

How to&Answers:

Cmd+Alt+L (in Mac) or Ctrl+Alt+L (Win) and PHP Storm will format code depends of your Code style in Settings. TO set this code style go:
File -> Settings -> Code style -> PHP(choose here your language) -> Other -> Align key-value pair – mark as checked. And then press Reformat code (Ctrl+Alt+L) and voila. You will get code, styled you write above.

Answer:

For me in PhpStorm 8.0.2 I found it here:

Settings -> Editor -> Code Style -> PHP -> Wrapping and Braces -> Align consecutive assignments

Answer:

A visual update for 2019.1 on Mac:

Go to PHP Storm > Preferences > Editor > Code Style > PHP > Wrapping and Braces > Assignment Statement > Align consecutive assignments.

To activate it go to Code > Reformat Code or press Cmd+Opt+L.
