WebStorm 2019.1.1, the first bug-fix update for the recently released WebStorm 2019.1, is now available!
Update to it using Toolbox App, or from the IDE. You can also download WebStorm 2019.1.1 from our website.

Syntax highlighting in the type info tooltip and documentation

The tooltip that shows the expression type (Cmd/Ctrl-hover) in JavaScript and TypeScript files now has a syntax highlighting.
We’ve also added highlighting for the code samples shown in the documentation popup.

Configuration for the use of aliases and path mappings in imports

It is now possible to configure how aliases and path mappings will be used when adding imports automatically in JavaScript and TypeScript files. If you want to use relative paths when importing a symbol in the nearby file and use path mappings or aliases everywhere else in your app, you can select Only in files outside specified paths in the new option Use path mappings/aliases in Preferences / Settings | Editor | Code Style | JavaScript or TypeScript – Imports.
