This is my first post on this forum.

I have been using Eclipse for about 10 years now, and only recently did I discover Mylyn. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT and already, I can't live without it.

Unfortunately, it seems to have stopped working all of a sudden. I am not 100% sure, but I think this happened after I uninstalled the Subversive plugin and replaced it with Subversion (I was having issues with the former, so went back to Subversion).

Basically, the problem is that my Navigator view doesn't have the "Focus on context" button anymore. I do have a task defined, and it is activated, but the "Focus on context" button simply isn't there.

What can I do to get this precious feature back?

Thanks

Hi Alain,

the most likely cause is that the Subversion connector had dependencies on
Mylyn that got uninstalled when the connector was uninstalled.

The focus buttons for the Navigator views are provided by context
connectors. For the Java package explorer you would need to install "Mylyn
Context Connector: Java Development" for instance which is available from
the Mylyn or Eclipse release train repositories.
