Ok, so i switched from 2.1 to 2.2 Helios, because I was getting nuts with the horribly general slowness of Eclipse and heard that Helios was faster.

Well, it is! So for some days I was really happy about it. Unfortunately, it is broken on some very important features.

Like the "open declaration" feature. I need this working. If I didnt cared about it, I would use a simple text editor. The #1 reason I use eclipse is because I can ctrl+click (or F3) at any function or method and I will be taken to its declaration.

But in the new PDT, this works for some methods, and not for others. Whats is strange is that the IDE will show a method on the code completion, and then will be unable to finde its declaration once its written.

It seems to be related with hierarchy. For example:

		$sel = new Zend_Form_Element_Select();
		foreach($this->_opts as $key=>$value)
			$sel->addMultiOption($key, $value);
		}//foreach this->_opts as key => value

Here, open declaration will work for "addMultiOption", but will not work for "loadDefaultDecorators". The difference between those 2 methods is that the first is declared on "Zend_Form_Element_Multi" (which "Zend_Form_Element_Select" extends), and the latter is declared on the base class "Zend_Form_Element".

PDT, however, knows about "loadDefaultDecorators": it is show in the code completion. But cant find it for "open declaration".

Therefore, it is broken. Ive been insisting on eclipse, despite all its issues. But I am about to give up. In fact, I will be using Netbeans at least until I can get "open declaration" working properly again, because I need it and annoys the heck out of me when I want to use it and its not avaliable. And I cant go back to that crawling resourse hogger that was the last version.

Unless there is something wrong with my eclipse. Is anyone else having this problem?

Confirmed on 'Eclipse for PHP Developers' package.
F3 doesn't work on "loadDefaultDecorators()".
But latest build 2.2.0/M201008260421(2010/08/26) doesn't have this problem. F3 works well.
You can try it or wait next release 2.2SR1(Helios SR1) scheduled on this month.
