    Eclipse -- word wrap?

    posting here because for some very odd reason Sitepoint got rid of java/JSP forum....

    can't find a way to make Eclipse wrap paragraphs.. it drives me absolutely nuts when I can't get an IDE to wrap paragraphs.. every IDE should have this.. pls tell me I can do this with Eclipse...

    thank you...

    Eclipse doesn't have it built-in. I can't imagine why you would want that feature in a code editor. Wrapped code is harder to read, IMHO.

    Two options that popped up in a google search:

    http://ahtik.com/blog/projects/eclipse-word-wrap/

    http://texlipse.sourceforge.net/manu...tallation.html

    Since both options are old, there's no guarantee that they will work.

    oh, I always want that in a text editor.. it drives me nuts to have to scroll endlessly to the right to see the end of a paragraph... doesn't make any sense to me at all (it doesn't wrap it in terms of how it displays on the browser, i.e., it doesn't add line-breaks to the paragraph.. it just wraps it on the editor for easier viewing..)

    it also bothers me I can't drag-n-drop to move or copy text/code, I guess I also need a "plugin" for this.. I don't get this... :-( I've never needed a plugin for these simple settings in IDE's like Dreamweaver.. am at a new job, we use Eclipse... hopefully they will let me dl these plugins... ;-)

    thank you...
