Control handles offset from controls in WindowBuilder [message #1837780] Sat, 06 February 2021 09:18 Go to next message

Newly installed Eclipse For Java Developers 2020/12.

Teaching myself WindowBuilder.

When I add a control to a window, the control handles are vertically displaced a considerable distance below the control in question. This happens with every control I have tried. See attached screen capture.

javascript: insertTag(document.post_form.msg_body, 'index.php/fa/39951/0/', '');

I am evaluating four different IDEs: Eclipse, NetBeans, Qt and Android Studio. The problem only appears with Eclipse.

It will be very hard to build a complex UI this way. Obviously something is wrong and it could well be a setting I have missed, being a new user of Eclipse.

If anyone can point me to a solution I will owe her or him a virtual beer / coffee / back rub ...

Fedora 33 Linux, Gnome 3.x, X window manager, Core i7, 16Gb RAM, 1Tb disk.

It will probably be better to ask on the WindowBuilder forum:

Quite right - my bad. I have reposted over there. Thanks for the correction. :)
