CL Auto-Reformat Issue with RDp Published by: Bob Cozzi on 09 Nov 2011 view comments(2)

When I move the cursor onto a line in CL, then move to the next line, RDp always "reformats" the code, using the entire length of the source statement. This means "nicely formatted" CL is now "word wrapped" by RDp making it virtually unreadable.

Is there a Setting to turn this goofy feature off?

Basically, I don't want the code auto-moved unless I prompt it using F4.

Hi Bob,


I'm running WDSC today but it might be similar in RDp.


Open Window/Preferences.Then go to Remote Systems/Remote Systems LPEX Ediror/Parsers/CL. Set 'Automatic Formatting' to suitable value.


Good luck,
