General, CSS, Text Editor, Options Dialog Box

Makes it possible for you to change default statement completion, word wrap, and display settings for the CSS Editor.

To edit these options, select Options from the Tools menu to open the Options dialog box. In the left pane, expand the CSS folder under Text Editor, and then select General.

Statement Completion

Auto list members
When enabled, the CSS editor displays pop-up lists of properties and values to insert in style declarations as you edit them. When you type the opening brace ({) after the selector for a style rule, a list of properties appears on the next keystroke. You can select any property from this list to insert it, or type a property name. After you type a property name and a colon, a list of values for that property is displayed. Again, you can select any value from the list or type one in. After you type a semicolon to end a declaration, the next keystroke reopens the list of style properties.
Hide advanced members
When enabled, the CSS editor displays lists of properties and values to insert in style declarations the more common choices, and omits those used less often.
Parameter information
When enabled, the complete syntax for the declaration is displayed to the left of the insertion point, including all its available parameters. The parameter whose value you are assigning is displayed in bold:


Enable virtual space
When enabled, extra padding spaces are inserted at the end of each line of code. Select this option to position comments at the right of your markup.
Word wrap
When enabled, the portion of a long line that extends beyond the limit of the viewable area is automatically displayed on the next line.
Note   You can toggle word wrap on or off while editing a document by selecting Advanced from the Edit menu and then choosing Word Wrap.


Line numbers
When enabled, a line number is displayed before each line of code in HTML View of the HTML Designer. These line numbers can be useful when debugging scripts because errors typically list the line number that caused the error. They do not print.
Enable single-click URL navigation
When enabled, the mouse cursor changes to a pointing hand as it passes over a URL in the HTML Designer, to show that you can click the URL to open the Web site named in your Web browser. When this option is deselected, the cursor does not change as it passes over URLs, and clicking a URL does not open the Web site named.
