Hi

I am new to eclipse and rcp, so am creating an e4 rcp application for the first time. I am not using the 3.x compatibility features as I feel its' best to stick with e4 since I do not know e3.

I could not find any info in tutorials about the perspective switcher, but did find this plugin (Cant link to it due to my message count being too low, h t t p s : / / github.com/jd-carroll/e4-perspective-switcher) and have tried it out.

What I would like to be able to do is optionally open a perspective in a new window or switch to it depending on users choice. The reason behind this is to enable a person with multiple monitors to have 2 perspectives open at once. These perspectives will be different views etc. For example having text editors in one, and graphical editors in another perspective.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for this, either using the above plugin or some other method?

Thanks

There isn't an Eclipse4 perspective switcher (the one in addons needs
the 4.x Workbench/Compat layer to work). Except for the one you found
that JD wrote. If you want to enhance it to work similar to the regular
one in the Eclipse IDE, you'll have to create new windows with your new
perspective by hand and then attach it to the model and set the TBR to true

Later,
