Word Wrap in Eclipse

It is still very buggy but we can live with it; you can enable Word Wrap in Eclipse. It screws up the line number, line height, etc but they will get back to their normal state once you turn off Virtual Word Wrap.

How to install?

  1. Open Eclipse
  2. Help > Software Updates > Find and Install
  3. Search for New Features to Install
  4. New Remote Site
  5. Enter the url – http://ahtik.com/eclipse-update/
  6. Install and Enjoy

It is available as a context-sensitive Menu “Virtual Word Wrap”.

  1. If you are using CFEclipse we have a new icon in 1.3 Beta that provides word-wrap for cfm and cfc files (or any other file you open with CFEclipse)

    Just so you know.

  7. Indeed - this plugin should also take into consideration, that user turned on line numbering. Right now it dosn't like each other (line numbering and word wrap) :)
    But anyway: good work!
