Open Declaration ('f3') stopped working and a box pops up instead [message #1181769] Mon, 11 November 2013 20:50

I am running Eclipse 3.8.1 with CDT, and I use 'f3' all the time for the Open Declaration functionality.

I must have accidentally changed some setting because now when I press 'f3', instead of going to the declaration of a variable or a function, I get a little box that pops up in the lower right corner saying:

"Open Declaration press 'Shift+Ctrl+L' to open the preference page."

How can I get my f3 functionality back? It seems like I accidentally turned on some different mode where it tells me the meaning of the 'f3' key rather than executing its function. Normal typing works fine, and the other shortcut key combos (such as auto-format) work fine.

Any thoughts?
