Preference Editor

Eclipse Preference Editor would be useful for developers debugging Eclipse/RCP applications - it allows to view/edit preferences for the running IDE, as well as for some workspace, configuration area, debugged configuration area or some arbitrary folder.

"Folder"/"Offline" editing

This mode allows changing preferences by editing special files containing them prior to launching particular IDE or workspace, changes are saved to corresponding files immediately.

"Platform"/"Online" editing

"Online" editing allows you to edit preferences from currently running platform/IDE.

Since 1.3, plugin can listen to preference changes for both current platform and folder modes. Alternatively, tracking can be turned off, please use "reload" button to refresh view content in such case.
