The Design tab is next to the Source tab at the bottom of the WindowBuilder Editor.

I have the same issue. Just installed Photon and after wading through various issues like marketplace not working if there is a space in the path I installed WindowBuilder Pro from

http://download.eclipse.org/windowbuilder/lastgoodbuild/

I am running on a Mac using MacOS High Sierra and JDK (build 1.8.0_181-b13)

I open an existing java source file using Open with window builder editor and all I get is the source tab - there is no design tab.

I can provide further information if you let me know what you need.

I was testing using a clean install of photon with WindowBuilder Pro and JasperStudio. I imported the Oxygen project into a fresh workspace.

Hey Dave,

There are many editors that compete on the same file extension. By default, java files will be opened by the java editor. To open with the windowbuilder editor, right click on a java file and select "Open With/Windowbuilder editor".

After the source is opened once with this editor, Eclipse will remember it.

Cheers,

Wim

Hi Dave,

Apologies, I did not read your post good enough. You already do that. First, lastgoodbuild might be the last good build but it is inherently unstable. If you choose to live on the bleeding edge then I salute you.

Please first close all existing editors and then retry open with windowbuilder.

If that fails the please check the error log view. If it contains suspicious content then file a bug by clicking here [1] and attach the log which can be exported from the error log view. Also attach your configuration which is hidden here:
help/about/installation details/configuration tab/copy to clipboard


while you wait for our triage, the next option is:
Restart eclipse once with the -clean option. Then try the above again.

and then:
Uninstall the lastgoodbuild and work with the latest stable 1.9.1 release.

Cheers,

Wim
