This is for anyone who is having the following problem with the "Ahtik" word-wrap plugin in Texlipse: the plugin installs fine, but selecting the "word-wrap" option using the context menu (or pressing ctrl+alt+w) causes the text to wrap momentarily, and then just flick back to being unwrapped (this probably includes anyone using Windows 7).

Here is a fix...straight from the developer himself! I emailed Ahti Kitsik in a last-ditch attempt to find a solution, and was amazed when he actually worked one out, and sent it to me the next day. He suggested that in return I could just make this information widely available.

So, the way to fix it as follows:

Look up the texlipse plugin location. This will probably be in the Eclipse folder, and the address will probably end: ...\eclipse\plugins\net.sourceforge.texlipse_1.5.0.

Backup the plugin.xml file there just in case, and then edit the original by deleting the following chunks of code:

-Firstly, the "action" (starting at line 843):


label="W&rap text"
tooltip="Use word wrap"

-Secondly, the "command" (starting at line 972):


name="Wrap text"

(When you have done this, the file should be 1257 lines long, instead of 1271. I have also attached a copy of the edited plugin.xml file that you can use).

Finally, Ahti says: "Start eclipse with -clean command line argument to force reloading of plugin.xml." (Personally I had no idea how to do this, so I just removed and reinstalled his plugin, then exited Eclipse, and edited the code before I restarted it).

The function should work fine now. Hope this helps someone. And thanks again Ahti!
