I am trying to execute the tutorial at The getting started part, section 1.1 to 1.3.7 including step 3.7 were completed without major problems. However the final steps in 3.7 are rather rudimentary described, so I translated the description "To test the resulting navigator, launch a runtime workbench, select the Model Explorer View, create a new general project, and then create a library model. Right click on the model, and choose Open with Extended Library Example Editor." to the following steps (the value of the bold'ed properties below are not described in the tutorial):
1. Launch the Eclipse Application.
2. Switch to the Sphinx Perspective in the created Eclipse instance.
3. Create a general project.
4. Create a Sphinx model by selecting File/New/Other.../Sphinx Example Wizard/model file.
a. Metamodel = Extended Library
b. Root element package = extlibrary
c. Root element class = Library
d. Next
e. File name = default.extlibrary
f. Finish
5. Open the file with the Extended Library Editor.

The second part of the tutorial concerning Model Editing Enhancements is basically incomprehensible to me. The tutorial describes some code changes/additions but it does not describe where these changes are to be made. Is it in the original Eclipse instance or in the created runtime instance? Is it in the org.eclipse.sphinx.examples.library.ide.ui project or somewhere else? Where are the super classes to be extended located? How are the extended classes included in a Sphinx editor plugin? etc. etc.

Is there any further documentation regarding Sphinx not available from

Best regards

this part of the tutorial is not a full step by step it presents possible things that can be customized and what classes or methods are needed to be extended.

All theses extensions are also provided as exemples in the humminbird example plug-in.

Can you please explain which parts are not clear for you? may be we will have some pointers ...
