Hey all,
This is a simple question but I can't work out for the life of me how to do it. I've been told it's possible, so here goes...
In the resource perspective (or any really), when I click a file's tab (or the file's contents I guess) in the editor pane, I'd like it to be located in the navigator pane. Is there a simple setting for this?
Trawling through the preferences window got me nowhere - what am I missing??
Cheers,
--Tim

In WSAD which is built on Eclipse you do the following
Window => Preference => Workbench => "Then select link navigator selection to active editor".
I haven't got Eclipse standalone on my pc at the moment but it could be the same.
Hope this helps
Graham

In Eclipse 3.0, the Navigator has a "link with editor" button on the top right (the yellow arrows). Don't remember how to do this in 2.x...

Thanks for the replies guys - Ilja I'm on 3.0 so that worked great.
Funny how something so trivial can be so hard to work out

Cheers,
