Commands and shortcuts to zoom in text editors In text editors, you can now use Zoom In (Ctrl++ or Ctrl+=) and Zoom Out (Ctrl+-) commands to increase and decrease the font size.Like a change in the General > Appearance > Colors and Fonts preference page, the commands persistently change the font size in all editors of the same type. If the editor type’s font is configured to use a default font, then that default font will be zoomed.
Full Screen The Full Screen feature is now also available on Windows and Linux. You can toggle the mode via shortcut (Alt+F11) or menu (Window > Appearance > Toggle Full Screen).When Full Screen is activated, you’ll see a dialog which tells you how to turn it off again.

On the Mac, Window > Toggle Full Screen (Control+Command+F) still works as before.

Substring code completion Content Assist now supports substring patterns. Enter any part of the desired proposal’s text, and Content Assist will find it! For example, completing on selection proposes all results containing selection as a substring.

This feature can be disabled using the Show substring matches option on the Java > Editor > Content Assist preference page.

Clean Up to remove redundant type arguments A new option to remove redundant type arguments has been added under the „Unnecessary Code“ group of the Clean Up profile.
Create new fields from method parameters You can now assign all parameters of a method or constructor to new fields at once using a newQuick Assist (Ctrl+1):
Quick Fix to configure problem severity You can now configure the severity of a compiler problem by invoking the new Quick Fix (Ctrl+1) which opens the Java > Compiler > Errors/Warnings preference page and highlights the configurable problem.

The Quick Fix icon may look familiar to you. In older Eclipse versions, this was a toolbar button in enriched hovers (i.e., you had to press F2 or move the mouse into the hover to see it).
