How can I force the context specific keymap to be rebuilt? [message #1427177] Fri, 19 September 2014 20:50 Go to next message

I've gotten into a situation where Eclipse has "phantom" key bindings that won't go away. I had set a couple of bindings for functions in the "Emacs+" plugin, but then I later decided to do it differently, and I removed those bindings. Everything in the "Keys" table is now consistent, but when I go back to my editor view and press the first or second key of the sequence, the help popup comes up and shows me the bindings that begin with that prefix. It lists the two bindings that don't exist anymore. I removed them, but Eclipse is still using them.

Just to be clear, while in the "Keys" table, I can sort by bindings and verify that only the bindings I expect are set. I can also sort by Command Name and verify that the commands I'm trying to bind are bound, to the keys I expect.

Update:

Note that I filed a ticket for this issue at: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=444656

There's no resolution yet, but we found a clue in the "workbench.xmi" file, which shows the phantom bindings.

I was able to hack a fix for this by simply removing the two phantom "bindings" elements from this file (while Eclipse was down) and restarting Eclipse. I'm hoping someone will follow through with the bug report and figure out how this might have happened, but at least my bindings are fixed for now.
