The Atelier editor support includes the following features:
Tools often report errors in terms of line numbers in the file. To set Atelier editors to display line numbers select Window > Preferences from the main menu, then select General > Editors > Text Editors. On this page, select the Show line numbers check box, as shown:
You can also type the command Show line numbers into the Quick Access bar to toggle visiblity of line numbers.
To navigate to a line number in a file, select Navigate > Go to Line from the main menu or type (CTRL+L).
Keyboard shortcuts provide quick access by mapping commands to a short series of keystrokes. Eclipse defines a number of shortcuts, and plug-ins can contribute additional shortcuts or modify existing ones. For these reasons, the exact mapping of commands to keyboard shortcuts can vary. Also remember that keystroke conventions are different for Windows and Mac machines. See UI Differences Between Mac and Windows. You can both examine and customize keystroke mappings by selecting Window > Preferences from the main menu and then selecting General > Keys. The help topic Atelier Keyboard Shortcuts provides a list of useful Eclipse shortcuts for Atelier.
The Eclipse help topic Keys provides further information on keyboard shortcuts.
When you type the content assist keystrokes, CTRL+Space, the editor opens a dialog box listing possible completions given the context of the current cursor position. See Editor Content Assist.
Hover the cursor over the name of a class to open an in-place window that displays documentation for the item under the cursor. Pressing F2 shifts focus to the documentation dialog box so you can scroll through the content. If the Atelier Documentation View is open, selecting a class name in the editor opens documentation in that view.
The View Web Page toolbar button opens a file as a web page in a browser. It is enabled only when the file content can be displayed as a web page. The file must be both selected and open in the Atelier editor.
The Atelier editor supports classes that use Business Process Language (BPL) and Data Transformation Language (DTL), and enables you to edit them in both source code and diagram format. When you open a BPL or DTL file, the editor displays it in a multi-view mode. Tabs at the bottom of the editor view let you switch between the source view on the left, and the diagram view on the right, as shown in the following image.
