Just a quick note to myself, this issue is happened to me previously and I somehow forget how I fixed it. Yesterday I accidently enabled the Whitespace characters in ColdFusion Builder which in turn displays the new line (\n) and carriage return (\r) characters as well in the Editor.
This is how my editor looks even after the "Show whitespace characters" is unchecked under the Preferences > Editors > Text Editor Section of my ColdFusion Builder.
After a bit of goggling I get the solution from Raymond Camden blog for hiding the white space characters. So to Show or Hide the whitespace / New Line / Carriage Return Characters in ColdFusion Builder or Eclipse all we need to use is CTRL + . (CTRL + DOT) key combinations.
The image is missing . . .
@Lola - Image is available now.
No, it's still not showing up. I double-checked in another browser (Chrome) and the image is missing there as well.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! btw.... on Mac it's: Command + .
Thank you so much for this. Turned this option on by accident when trying to close a tag! On large monitors it slows CF Builder (Mac version) to an absolute crawl and gobbles all available CPU.
@Todd & @George
Glad to Help.
The images is available now and thanks for letting me know.
Thaankyou for this, the amount of times i have accidently hit this keystroke and turned it on.
Thank you George!!! I was searching for "coldfusion builder slows to a crawl" which brought this thread up. I never would have guessed it was the whitespace! Thank you thank you thank you. I was going out of my mind.
