Jim H. Yes you can define an external editor but what you may gain is lost with respect to the features that we take for granted while coding inside the Eclipse IDE.

If so, then I'd say try to close everything you can in Eclipse that you aren't using. One other thing to do is to define an external editor and make Eclipse open that.

Is it possible to set maximum number of characters per line, so each line fits the screen? I have Eclipse editor maximized, but some lines are still wider than the screen, and it's extremely annoying.
