I just got my feedback from MAX (thanks everyone!) and someone had a great tip in there. I thought it would be a good addition to my previous post on presentation tips. One of the things I mentioned was increase the size of text in your editor. One of the side effects of this is that lines now can go far off screen.
What I would suggest doing is this: Bump up your text size and see how many characters you can see on screen. Then go to your CFEclipse settings and enable "Show Print Margin". Set the Print Margin to the number of characters you were able to see on screen at the higher font size. Then return to your normal font size and code away.
I believe I remember hearing that CFEclipse may include word wrap in the future - but I don't think it is in yet. (Mark - correct me if I'm wrong.)
CFEclipse 1.2.9 through 18.104.22.168 have had word wrapped enabled. They are considered beta releases, but I have used them without any issues. So, you increase teh font and use word wrap without any consequence.
Also, CFEclipse is Eclipse 3.1 and 3.2 compatible, so that allows for more adoption of the CFEclipse beta.
I've been using that beta since the end of August with no problems so far.
And I love the word wrap!
I've been running CFEclipse since CF United (help - about eclipse SDK - click "about plug ins" button and scroll down to the CFEclipse info - I'm on 1.2.9 according to that) and love the "enable/disable word wrap" icon which by default is to the right of the comments icon.
Doh.. was away on the train. Yeah, there is a little icon we put there that does word wrap, on the main toolbar.
Another presentation tip, if you have a MacBook Pro (you do) and a scroll wheel (or use two fingers) you can actually ZOOM in. I did this at CFDevCon to display features that dont scale (show a dictionary, or the tasks, people cant see that normally)
I think people were more amazed at that than my actual CFEclipse presentation.
How do you do the zoom?
Apple + Scroll
That works on my 3-year-old PB as well . . .
