Ok, if you are like me, and I hope to God you aren't, you anal retentively scan the desktop and application settings of people giving presentations. Maybe it's a bit of ADD - but I obsess over it. Dock icons. Desktop shortcuts. You name it. Anyway, I just got out of a presentation and noticed the user's ColdFusion Builder layout was missing a small tweak I've done to mine. Have you noticed that - by default - you have a CFBuilder perspective button on a line all by itself?
Yeah, on a wide screen, that's a lot of space wasted for one little button. On a laptop it's even more valuable. Just right click and select Dock On and Top Right:
That shifts it to the right and up into the row above it.
Thanks, Ray. The reclaimed space just "feels" better.
Shameless plug, but it's relevant, so... I put another tip or two for maximizing CFBuilder screen real estate here -- http://blog.mxunit.org/2009...
I do Dock Left, Show Text (off). And I also drag that small toolbar on the right in your screenshot above to the left as well.
That gives me a small toolbar down the left side and those icons still show up when using the full screen plugin.
A quick, but extremely helpful tip! I am now 10px more efficient.
That's weird - mine's always been top right by default.
Maybe because I do a plugin install? Is this on the standalone installer?
