Hi,

As stated in the subject I have an embedded XText editor I use in a property sheet. This works in general very well. The only problem I currently have is that when I set the content of the editor it always shows the text completely selected. This is very anyoing for editing the text.

I tried to use the setSelection method of my editors' XtextSourceViewer with an emtpy TextSelection, but got now success.

Any tips what I can do here.

Thanks in advance,
Alois

can you please file a bug for that.

you can workaround the problem by initial creating the embedded editor using .createPartialEditor("","","", true)
