I have tried WindowBuilder in Eclipse Neon and it's impossible work with it. I tried on Fedora 25 and Ubuntu 16.04 with the same results: crashes, eclipse hangs, misplaced selection frames ...

Are someone using it for work? Is Window Builder under development?

We confirm that we are using WB also with Neon for daily work, but must admit that we are using it with Windows.
I tried it with Linux some time, but generally had several problems there.
Just with a CentOS 7 I managed to use it.

I'm trying it with a Centos 7 and, for a new empty project, designer runs ok. But in my big project I cant open any created Composite, giving to me several errors

Last error is
Quote:
Constructor PhoneComposite(Composite,int) was used with the parameters {<null>,0}.
Note: null values may occur when parsing complex expressions that can't be resolved at design-time.
org.eclipse.wb.internal.core.utils.exception.DesignerException: 2005 (Null as parent argument.).


On Windows it works Sad

any sugestion?

It works fine under Windows. It has worked under a variety of Linux distros in the past, but no one is currently attempting to get it working on any current Linux distro. If any Linux gurus out there want to sign up as a committer on on the project, we would be happy to have them look at it. Be forewarned that the incompatibilities between Linux distros and even versions of the same distro make it a tough proposition. Personally, I would recommend using it under Windows, if you really need to us it.
