I'm recently starting to use Eclipse for C++ development. Before C++ I worked with mostly JS through Atom.

I am on MacOS 10.14

My largest issue with Eclipse right now is how it handles multiple windows on multiple monitors. I tried to put a window with a console and the breakpoints on the other monitor, this worked ok. However, any time a dialog popped up while focused on the other window, the debug pane would jump to there.

I then tried to use perspectives to save the layout of the views in the first debug pane. However, when I started the debug session, the original debug console and breakpoints pane popped up and the second monitor's window gained an editor for the debugged file.

When I looked around the forums here, I found very little about the monitor issues, and one post in the last year.

Besides the windows, I'm having a few other aggravating problems.

Perhaps changing the preferences for the Debug perspective in Window -> Preferences -> Run/Debug -> View Management will help...

How did you do this
by using the "Window>New Window" menu option
or by dragging the console and breakpoint tabs off the main window and letting them create there own window

I did both, when I created a window by dragging it jumped like I said before. When I did create a new window, it started with an editor pane and a project view, as they were already on my first window I deleted them. When I actually started a debug session the origional layout was restored.
