Oracle SQL Developer - Version 2.1 to 4.1 [Release APEX 2.1 to 4]
Generic Windows


Whilst trying to modify the SQL or PL/SQL code in SQL worksheet, the redrawing of SQLWorksheet does not load the UI properly. The following java error can be seen in the Debug Console

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException
at oracle.javatools.editor.folding.CodeFoldingMargin.getFontHeight(CodeFoldingMargin.java:614)
at oracle.javatools.editor.folding.CodeFoldingMargin.paintComponent(CodeFoldingMargin.java:764)
at javax.swing.JComponent.paint(JComponent.java:1027)

Even after adding the following settings

AddVMOption -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true

in sqldeveloper.conf located in \sqldeveloper\bin did not resolve the issue
