[FDS-48] Eclipse debugging keyboard shortcuts F5 (Step Into) and F8 (Resume) don’t work.


This may occur when CFEclipse is also installed, either separately or using the FusionDebug bundled installation.

Both CFEclipse and the Eclipse platform itself claim these shortcuts: F5 on CFEclipse and Eclipse means ‘refresh browser’ and F8 on CFEclipse means ‘Open Scribble Pad’.

These keys always have their debugging meanings (Step Into and Resume, respectively) when the Debug View is focused.

If you want to configure these keys so they will continue to work when a CFEclipse editor is active, please use the following procedure.

  • Select Window -> Preferences
  • In the Preferences window, on the left open General and select Keys.
  • In the Key Sequence area, place the cursor in the Name field and press the F5 key.
  • Eclipse shows you all the commands bound to that key.
  • Select the CFML Editor context line, and click the Remove button just below.
  • Select the In Windows line, and again click the Remove button.
  • Place the cursor in the Key Sequence ‘Name’ field, and use backspace to delete the F5 mapping.
  • With the cursor still in the Name field, press the F8 key.
  • Select the CFML Editor context line, and click the Remove button.
  • Finally click Apply then OK.
