Unable to set hierarchical project presentation by default [message #1787602] Tue, 29 May 2018 21:19 Go to next message

I'm trying to get Project Explorer > Projects Presentation > Hierarchical set by default (as opposed to Flat) in a custom Eclipse RCP application.

We've had great luck using plugin_customization.ini for most preferences, but org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer.activatedExtensions and org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer.filterActivation have been causing grief.

- I start our product with new / clean workspace, exit, then create a copy of the whole .metadata structure.

- I start our product, set Projects Presentation to Hierarchical via the Project Explorer menu, then exit.

- I "diff -r" the new and copied .metadata directories. That pointed me to org.eclipse.ui.navigator.prefs, where I found org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer.activatedExtensions and org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer.filterActivation.

- I added the following to our plugin_customization.ini file:


- I rebuilt our product, ran it with a new workspace, but Projects Presentation is still Flat.

- If I manually copy org.eclipse.ui.navigator.prefs in to the workspace and restart, then I see Projects Presentation set to Hierarchical.

I isn't clear to me why those prefs aren't customizable like the other preferences we've customized. Would appreciate any assistance.

Hi Nick,

I'm facing the same issue today with a product based on Eclipse 2019-03, did you found a solution past year to solve this issue?

Thanks by advance.
