Hi,

is there any option that allows me to control how quickly resources fade off and when they are actually removed from the context?
I have used Mylyn for a while now but I find resources fade off too quickly for my liking and, personally, I would actually prefer if they did not get removed from the context at all (unless I remove them explicitly, of course). It happens quite often that I have to search for files or functions I need because they have been removed from the navigator or outliner.

I had a look at the preferences but couldn't find any option related to this. Assuming there is no such option, would it be possible to add one that prevents Mylyn from removing resources from the context on its own?

(in case it's relevant, I'm using Mylyn 3.3.3 under Eclipse 3.5.2 on Linux)

Thanks,

- Matthias -

Hi Matthias,

if you close a resource, it is removed from the context -- this is by design and cannot be changed.

But if you want to mark a resource as important, use land marks, i.e. right-click and "Mark as
Landmark". This does not work on all resources, though.

Cheers, Jörg
