How to Word wrap eclipse console logs width


It's kind of annoying to scroll large log text, while working with Java J2EE Spring framework in eclipse IDE, the text per line is so large that horizontal scrolling is required to read them.

Word wrap Eclipse console logs:

Though I didn't find a way to do a word wrap, yes you can set a fixed width per line for the Eclipse Console logs, lets's see the steps on how we can do so,

  • Go to Preferences : On Mac => Eclipse -> Preferences and Window -> Preferences on Windows OS
  • Now look for Run/Debug
  • Now go to Console.
  • Check : Fixed width Console.
  • Set the max character width as per your screen width.
  • Apply.
  • OK.
