Editors preferences

Editors preferences page
The Editors preferences page is shown.

You can change the following preferences on the Editors preferences page:

  • Size of recently opened files list—Each file that is opened in an editor is stored in a list of recently used files in the File menu. This option controls the number of files that is displayed in that list.
  • Show multiple editor tabs—Specify whether to show multiple editor tabs. If this is off, editor workbooks have one large tab and all non-visible editors are accessible only from the drop-down menu.
  • Show Heap Status—Turn this option on to display an indicator showing information about current Java heap usage. A basic heap monitor in CityEngine reports Java and core heap usage.
  • Allow in-place system editors—Specify if OLE in-place editing will be used on the Windows platform.
  • Restore editor state on startup—Specify if editors should be restored on the next launch of CityEngine.
  • Close editors automatically—Specify whether to reuse editors in CityEngine. If this is on, you may specify the number of editors to use before they are recycled (the default is 8). You can also specify if a prompt dialog box will open or if a new editor will open when all editors are dirty (have unsaved changes). Once it is turned on, the Pin Editor action is added to the toolbar and editor tab menu. Pinned editors are not recycled.
