Dear Eclipse! If there is any file modifications outside of your weird interface, don't blow and tell me that I have to press F5. Just refresh it or gimme an option for it. Arghhh!

    I do remember that shit too, but I think it got fixed (tested under 4.5.0).

    hello sir, i find your comment about eclipse absolutely distasteful as it makes me (as a founder) feel bad about my product. please refer to my email for any questions/concerns you have and if you need a hook up.

    There is a preference to avoid this. Preference -> Workspace -> Refresh on Access. I agree that this should be enabled by default.

    @Paul, @Zoltan I'm glad this site made that fixed after so many years :)

    Just tick "Refresh on activate" and Refresh using native hooks checkboxes.

    Yeah, it is irritating. However, since 3.7 (I think), there is the preference setting 'Refresh on access' in the General/Workspace page of the workspace preferences. Off by default, but solves the issue quite well.

    Auto-refresh's interval must be 10 minutes or st, everytime I use auto-refresh I find myself still doing F5's :S

    Turn on workspace auto refresh - it is off by default because native file change notification is not avail on all plats

    Specify it in the preferences: General/Workspace

Workspace default settings: spell checking on, showing editor line numbers off. that totally makes sense.

    I raised #191154 in 2007 about this issue. It's kind of nice to see it getting resolved, even though I haven't used Eclipse in about five years now.

    Next Eclipse SDK integration build (Luna) will have line numbers enabled by default. https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/18233/ #hubbahubba

When I cancel a task, it hangs and ends up taking longer than it would have taken to let it finish.

    There is no safe way to forcefully terminate a running code block in java, so eclipse has to rely on the plugin (generally third party) code to check for its cancellation. Often they don't implement cancellation logic correctly in terms of check intervals and cleanup speed. Also it could be impossible if it's calling the code or tool that does not support cancellation. Sucks, but not sure what could possibly be done here. It's a very complex issue.

Btw: "Install new software" at the bottom of the "Help" menu? Brilliant GUI design!!!

    They put it there because it never works, and they know you'll need help eventually when you're using that feature.

    As bad as it is to remove software (you have to remove EACH PLUGIN individually, one by one, as far as I can tell), I don't really think this counts. Plenty of other programs have "Plugins" in the help menu.

    Recreate the .metadata folder in your workspace to fix it. Why couldn't eclipse recreate it or fix by itself? I don't know...

    My experience exactly, using eclipse on and off, over the years, each period using it extensively for at timeperiod, just had a project for 7 weeks, non-related eclipse book, more than 5 workdays. aka 40+ hours of wasted time, + the stress of not working on my project problems, but on eclipses problems. That's about 10.000 Dollars in client billings, but should client take the hit, or the company...., (Told the company the should use something else, but the were entrenched with eclipse.)

    This deserves a pie chart on the download page. Please note: relevant CDT. 5% writing the code, 5% debugging logic, 90% debugging eclipse's constant hissyfits. I'm actually going to use something else. this is beyond the joke. its not ready for use.

    It gives you a chance to recover a changed file before you compile it.

    Could be worse. If you hit F5 in Visual Studio, depending on what's got focus, it tends to spend ages compiling then running the thing!

    Go to Window - Preferences - General -> Workspace and check the 'Refresh Automatically' checkbox ☺

Any IDE that refuses to SAVE MY WORK until it has finished doing some stupid parse or building the project is completely !@#$% up in my opinion.

"Sorry but your workspace is out of sync with the filesystem". Oh, well, guess I will have to sync it by hand, what other choice I have?
