Logcat Clearing too Fast- Eclipse

While running app on latest android devices, from ADT Eclipse, you may find difficulty in viewing LogCat data. As lots of other background services of different apps are running, logcat clearing out in a glimpse.

At this kind of situation, To view LogCat data you have to change a Eclipse setting as shown below..

Goto Window ->Preferences -> In left panel expand Android -> select LogCat -> here in right panel you can see Maximum number of LogCat messages to buffer set as 5000,

Change this value to some large number like 500000. Click Apply and then Ok. (You may get a Error notifying a preference change listener. just ignore it.)

Now you can able to see LogCat data.

In Eclipse, how to edit commit message of local commit with EGit

Yes, we can edit commit message,

If you recognize that you missed something when committing a change you may edit commit message: open the staging view or commit dialog again

and specify that the current commit shall “amend” the previous commit in the current branch.
edit commit message
The new commit will then replace the previous one. This feature is often used to correct incorrect commits before they are published to other repositories.

Note: do not amend commits if they have already been published to a shared repository since this may disturb others if they already based their changes on the published change.

above is the excerpts from the
Eclipse documentation
Egit User guide

Issues with Android SDK tools rev.23 installed from SDK manager

ADT is deprecated as per Developer Android user guide , so links in this post may break or shows a different page. 

Since developer website removed ADT bundle download pages. If you want to download ADT bundle, Please see this link.

Hi Guys, If you are using ADT (Android Developer Toolkit) version 22.3.0.v, For any reason don’t install Android SDK Tools rev.23 from SDK manager. You will fall into many issues using ADT Eclipse editor. And finally, You cannot use Eclipse anymore.

After installing rev.23, I see this message.

Android SDK tools

This Android SDK requires Android Developer Toolkit version 23.0.0 or above. 
Current version is 22.3.0.v201310242005-887826. Please update ADT to the latest version.

and I see no way out to fix the issue. see this thread .

the only other solution, i found is download the latest ADT from this link. When I download and install adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140702, it has Juno eclipse editor version which is very buggy editor. And in this Juno editor, cannot dock views(i mean Console, Error log, Properties etc), in any other place then default place, I felt its annoying.

I hardly come out of issue, by grep through whole hard disk data, Luckily I’m able to find the copy of old version i.e. 22.0.1v (i mean adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130522) and used that.

Work around for this is simply

Change android version as shown below
