Greetings:

I am a person who tends to use several different perspectives during my development efforts. In earlier versions of Eclipse, I was able to change the docking of the perspective buttons by right- clicking on them. When I right- clicked, I would get a menu that had a "Dock On" item and a checked "Show Text" item. I would select "Dock On"->"Top Left", which gave my perspective toolbar enough space to show all the perspectives I happened to be using.

It appears that this capability has been removed in Juno.

Now when I right click on the perspective buttons, I just get the checked "Show Text" item. There is apparently no way now to move the perspectives to the top left. This is somewhat annoying because I really don't want to be forced to use a menu to switch between perspectives -- which is what comes up when the perspectives are on the top right of the window.

Has the ability to change the position of the perspective buttons been completely removed? If not, what is the new procedure required to utilize it? If it has been completely removed (and my shlogging through reams and reams of help text would indicate that it has) then where do I have to go to request that it be put back in???

Please advise!
