I've customized the perspectives I use often pretty thoroughly. Sometimes, however, I accidentally close a window and I need to reopen it. However, when I do, all the selected columns reset to the defaults.
The easiest way to reproduce this, is in Java mode (or any mode, I suppose):
- Choose upside-down triangle in the Tasks view
- Click configure columns
- Remove a column, such as "Completion".
- Window -> Save Perspective as... It will say "do you wish to overwrite Java"?
- Choose yes, because the changes don't actually save anyway
- Window -> New Window
And you will see, in the new Window, the removed column has returned!
Is there a way to make this change permanent? I tried looking through the files in <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/.org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings but as I didn't know what I was looking for, I didn't know what to change.
