hmm.. yes, that looks like a usable workaround..
Only one problem.. that feature is not available in my JBDS 1.1.0.GA (JBoss Tools 2.1.2) !
And I still wonder.. in JBoss Tools up to 2.0.0 (for instance in JBDS 1.0) the JBoss Tools HTML editor had 4 tabs (visual/source, visual, source and preview).. why not keep them?
SO: still a problem.. sorry.
But thanks for pointing out the jira issue.. seems I'm not the only one wondering what happened :-)
it was removed since the splitpane functonallity makes the src tab redundant. You can set it up to be just what you like it to be - including just show source by default to avoid waiting for xulrunner to start.
Anyhow - we will bring back the src tab since it seems like what most people likes to have even though its redundant ;)
Yes sir.. bringing back the src tab is the way to go :-)
BTW: I already set Eclipse/JBDS up to start all multi tab editors on the source tab, but in the JBT HTML editor that still leaves you with a split pane editor.. because there is no src only tab.
And the above mentioned feature of setting the split pane to 100% src is not available in my JBDS 1.1 even though it's got v. 2.1.2 of the tools in the belly?.. strange..
But bring back the src tab, and I'm happy ;-)
