Over the past week, since switching from using ColdFusion Builder as a plug-in to the stand-alone version, I've noticed that every time I started ColdFusion Builder, the application window would maximize across my screen. This drives me nuts because my main computer has a large screen and high display resolution ... I don't need that much ColdFusion when I code :).
I looked throughout the preferences for a setting but found none. I also ran some obligatory forum and web searches but, still, didn't find anything useful ... hence this post.
Manually Set the Stand-alone Version of ColdFusion Builder's (read: Eclipse's) Application Properties.
- Start ColdFusion Builder.
- Set the application window to the width and height you'd like to keep.
- Close ColdFusion Builder.
- Open your workspace directory (on my Mac, the default went to /Users/<username>/Documents/Adobe ColdFusion Builder workspace/).
- Show your hidden files (if necessary, which it is for me on my Mac!).
- Open the .metadata folder.
- Open the .plugins folder.
- Open the org.eclipse.ui.workbench folder.
- Open the workbench.xml file.
- Edit line 4 (that's the line number in my file but, more importantly, the line contains an XML element with the following: window height="1055" maximized="true" width="1824" x="33" y="47").
- Change this element by either removing the maximized attribute altogether or change it's value to false (i.e., window height="1055" maximized="false" width="1824" x="33" y="47").
- Save the file.
- Open ColdFusion Builder.
You should now be able to maintain your desired window's width.
NOTE: This issue may only be on the Mac (or maybe it's not an issue at all!). I don't have another machine on which I can test ColdFusion Builder. And I have filed it as a bug with Adobe, just in case!
