eclipse -- [Workbench] Eclipse IDE.. focus not release from one window to another
posted 10 years ago
While using Eclipse IDE for java development, many a times the IDE is stuck to one component. For e.g. if I have 'Java Perspective' open and I click on 'Package Explorer' window, I can select a file, but sometime that's the only action I can do. I am unable to get focus on any other window (eg 'Outline' or the 'Editor' window). The only way is to do an 'Alt+tab' to get focus on some other program and then come back to Eclipse IDE. This happens very often on my machine. Specs 1. Running on Windows2000 Professional 2. JDK 1.5 3. Eclipse 3.1.2
I filed this bug with eclipse but then after I started having problem in other java applications, I asked them to close it.
