the great thing with blogging is: i receive great comments, questions and ideas. the great thing with eclipse/codewarrior is that the extensions are almost unlimited . for my earlier post on hiding the toolbar i received a tip for another way which even is better: a plugin to switch eclipse into full screen mode. here is how to install it and how it looks…
the plugin is available from http://code.google.com/p/eclipse-fullscreen/ . download the zip file. the zip file has the cn.pande.eclipsex.fullscreen_<version>.jar file. copy that file inside the codewarrrior or eclipse eclipse\plugins folder.
after launching eclipse there is new entry in the window menu:
this switches eclipse into full screen mode:
this hides the toolbar, menu and status bar, and i have more space available for what matters
how to get out of full screen mode:
- press esc key to exit full screen mode.
- ctrl+alt+z is the default shortcut to toggle between ‘normal’ and ‘full screen’ mode.
happy full screening
