1. Why doesn't my right-click menu on a view tab show any items except Close, and is there a way to add these (such as Detached)?
2. If Detached is no longer on the right-click menu, or it has been disabled by my employer, how do I get the dragging of the view tab to the "Workbench window" to restore the view to work on my computer?
More detailed information:
I am following a JAVA tutorial at lynda.com, which also includes how to use Eclipse. My version is "Version: Juno Service Release 1 Build id: 20120920-0800", with the latest copyright date shown as twenty-twelve. I think the video I'm watching was made in twenty-eleven, so it may be using an earlier version.
This tutorial shows a way to detach a view by right-clicking its tab and choosing Detached. There are also other options in the context menu that appears in this tutorial. However, when I right-click, all I see is "Close". Are the other options missing as a result of some installation options my employer chose for Eclipse? If so, is there a way within Windows -> Preferences to add them? Or is this possibly a change made in a more recent version of Eclipse?
Googling for help, I found a page at http colon slash slash help.eclipse.org/luna/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Ftasks%2Ftasks-9l dot htm that gives an alternative version for detaching and then restoring the view. However, I can't get the restore option, "To restore the view to be shown inside of the Workbench window, drag the view tab into the Workbench window," to work on my computer. I've dragged it all kinds of ways onto what I call the Eclipse window, but it doesn't result in the view becoming re-attached. Perhaps my problem is that I'm not in whatever this "Workbench window" is!
Fortunately, the tutorial went on to describe the Window -> Reset Perspective option, and all was back to normal.
Thanks for any help that anyone can give me on this.
