How reorder working sets in Eclipse Indigo? [message #753775] Fri, 28 October 2011 12:55 Go to next message
Eclipse User
I just upgraded to Eclipse Indigo. It appears that some working set
functionality is missing. How do I change the order of the working sets
in the Project Explorer window? In Helios I could just drag and drop.

A second, but related question: What happened to the default Other
Projects working set? Now when I create a project I have to explicitly
add it to a selected working set or I can't see it. Before, it would
just show up in the default.

I have to add that I feel this is a pretty major backstep in the convenience of working sets. My team uses them pretty heavily to organize their project views as we have many components in our systems and this has made the task of managing those sets pretty significantly more costly. Would you like us to submit this as a bug?

Thanks for a great tool, don't take this too harshly just that we wish you'd go back to the default Other Projects and the order-able working sets.

I think it would be great if someone submitted it as a bug. You're elected.

It looks like you used the 'Package Explorer' before which has all the
features you describe. The 'Project Explorer' never supported
re-ordering or the 'Other Projects' working set.
