How to force IntelliJ to only step into my source code?

Currently there is no overall option to only target user code (like Visual Studio’s ‘Just My Code’).

The best way to have the same behavior is to exclude specific code classes or packages (it is possible to setup filter patterns for class packages via wildcards) that will not be ‘stepped into’.

This can be achieved within the Settings/Preferences, in the Debugger/Stepping options.
