Format Code on Visual Studio Code

The code formatting is available in Visual Studio Code through the following shortcuts:

  • On Windows Shift + Alt + F
  • On Mac Shift + Option + F
  • On Linux Ctrl + Shift + I

Alternatively, you can find the shortcut, as well as other shortcuts, through the submenu View / Command Palette, also provided in the editor with Ctrl +ShiftP (or Command + Shift + P on Mac), and then searching for format document.

For unsaved snippets

  1. Open command palette (Win: F1 or Ctrl+Shift+P)
  2. Find “Change Language Mode”
  3. Select language e.g. json. By now syntax should be highlighted.
  4. Format document (e.g. Open Command Palette -> “Format Document“)


  1. Select text
  2. Command Palette -> Join Lines
