Fonts Options The Fonts Options allows you to specify how the font should look. There are four font categories. Main Font: Specifies the font for the text in the definitions pane and the Interactions Pane. Line Numbers Font: Specifies the font for the line numbers in the definitions pane, if you enabled them. Document List Font: Specifies the font for the file names in the navigator pane on the left. Toolbar Font: Specifies the font used on the toolbar You also have the option of using anti-aliased text. If this is selected, DrJava displays a smoothed version of the text. In some situations, this is more pleasant to view.

The Preferences Menu 37 Color Options The Colors Menu allows you to specify colors for a variety of types of text. Click on the "..." button to change the color for a type of text. The color is then demonstrated on the colors menu. Window Positions The Window Positions category allows you to control if DrJava saves the positions of its windows. Save Window Size and Position: Check this if you want the size and position of the main DrJava window to be saved on exit. Save "xxx"Dialog Position: Check this if you want the size and position of the "xxx" dialog to be saved on exit (different choices for "xxx").

The Preferences Menu 38 Reset "xxx" Dialog Position and Size: Press this button to reset the size and position of the "xxx" dialog (different choices for "xxx"). This can be useful if the dialog was displayed outside the screen for some reason and is not accessible. Detach Tabbed Panes: By default, the tabbed panes are attached to the bottom of DrJava's main window. By selecting this option, DrJava displays the tabbed panes in their own separate window. Detach Debugger: By default, the debugger pane is displayed in DrJava's main window. By selecting this option, DrJava displays the debugger in its own separate window. Key Bindings The Key Bindings menu allows you to specify the keyboard shortcuts you use for everything from compiling a document to cutting text to resetting the Interactions Pane. The only restriction is that the shortcut you choose must be one basic entry--for example, you cannot use Ctrl-X, Ctrl-S to save a file, but you could use Ctrl-Alt-S. However, actions accept multiple key bindings so that a user may bind both Ctrl-X and Ctrl-S to the save file action and use either keystroke combination to save their file. Adding support for a wider range of keyboard shortcuts is a feature request currently under review. Compiler Options The Compiler Options menu allows you to set what warnings you will be shown in the compilation window on a normal compile. An explanation of each warning is given if you hover the mouse over it. We recommend that beginning programmers uncheck all of these boxes until they have a solid understanding of what the warnings mean.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
