here below is my code, and I am always getting this path:

IWorkbenchPart workbenchPart = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage().getActivePart(); 
			IFile file = (IFile) workbenchPart.getSite().getPage().getActiveEditor().getEditorInput().getAdapter(IFile.class);
			String path = file.getRawLocation().toOSString();
			System.out.println("path: " + path);


/Users/zakariasfridriksson/runtime-EclipseApplication/is.ru.cs.PapyrusActivityLogger.example/is.ru.cs.PapyrusActivityLogger.example.di

everything is almost right, the runtime-EclipseApplication is wrong (should be: /Users/zakariasfridriksson/Desktop/HR/is.ru.cs.PapyrusActivityLogger.example/is.ru.cs.PapyrusActivityLogger.example.di

Check your runtime-EclipseApplication launcher settings, it sounds like its workspace location (which should NOT be the same as your original instance's) is not what you want it to be.

yea it makes a fake workspace somewhere on my computer while I am working, but I need to access a file from the location of the code that I have written,.

Do you know how to do that? like what should I change in the configurations (if you understood me right the first time around)

thanks for your help in advance!
