I have a perspective saved and periodically after running projects, it changes. Like the Outline window is gone. I go from Debug and back to my saved perspective and it stays gone. This is one of the things that eclipse does that is annoying. What's the use in saving a custom perspective if eclipse changes it all the time? Is this normal behavior for the Classic version?

I've had this happen years ago when I ran other versions too.

Larry,

No, that's not normal. A bugzilla with steps to reproduce the problem
would be great! (I've never seen this happen.)

I didn't expect to see that you have never seen it happen. Every time I have started to use eclipse through the years, it happens all the time and it's frustrating. I must be doing something wrong then. However, all I do is run samples and skeleton java code and when they end, the perspective changed. I really didn't do anything fancy. I seem to be jinxed with eclipse.

Thank you for your reply. Razz

I don't see it often, once a month or so, and its always after I've been
"flying around" clicking lots of things, hitting lots of keys, so figure
I just some how accidentally hit "cntl-something-or-other" ... but I
always just use "reset perspective" and all goes back go normal
(including what ever changes I had customized into that perspective".
So, my point is, if you open a bug, be sure to say if "reset" is not
working as you expect, or if your changes to customization are not being
saved across reset, or whatever.

Good luck,

Wow, I can say that in 6-7 years of Eclipse use, I've never seen this
either. (I've always downloaded Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers.)

Bad karma, man.

Funny. Yeah, I've felt jinxed alright. I also use intelliJ and I prefer that IDE, but too many books and also code on the Internet are done with eclipse.

I installed JEE instead of using Classic and it runs much faster. The plugins installed smoother too. Maybe this will help.
