Eclipse PDT Word Wrap

We’d think our lovable free PHP IDE, Eclipse PDT, would come with word wrap functionality because it’s so basic. Surprisingly, it doesn’t. However, it’s not complicated to add this feature to your Eclipse PDT editor.

  • Go to Help -> Software Updates.
    Eclipse Software Update
  • Click Available Software.
  • If the site ‘’ is not already listed, click Add Site.
  • Enter ‘’.
  • Install Virtual Word Wrap by checking the left side box.

  • Left click in the editor.
  • Turn Virtual Word Wrap on by clicking it from the pop up window.
  • Eclipse PDT Virtual Word Wrap

We still have turn on the feature for each PHP file, but it’s still better than not having one.
