JBoss Tools HTML editor: default tab: source

Submitted by Jochus on Tue, 26/01/2010 - 22:12 | Posted in: Java

I'm using the JBoss Tools (Eclipse plugin) for a while now, and it gives me a lot of advantages while I'm programming. It has a lot of features and one of them is the JBoss Tools HTML editor. I'm using that editor to quickly create some XHTML files. The problem is that this plugin always starts the editor in DESIGN/SOURCE mode. I never use the DESIGN mode, so I just want to have the SOURCE mode.

After searching the preferences, I found a setting to set this to the DEFAULT configuration:

  • Window > Preferences
  • JBoss Tools
  • Web
  • Editors
  • Visual Page Editor
