I’m back from holiday now, i’m on latest version now and will give it a shot, thanks
Everything seems good and is running smoothly in terms of switching between tabs.
There is a usability concern is that when an import is added it jumps to the top of the page to show the import and i loose track where i was in the page. Minor but think it could be handled better with maybe a notification displayed instead and then you can continue coding instead of scrolling back and finding where you were and clicking to start typing again.
Also the page switches when clicking save all, i believe it should stay on the page you are on:
– open 3 (or any number) files
– change file 1, switch to file 2 and change, switch to file 3 and change
– click save all
– the focus should stay on page 3 (or the page i am on) and not jump back to page 1
Other than this, it’s super smooth and nice to use, cheers
You’re right, the auto import causing the jump is an unnecessary break in your coding flow. We’ve filed a bug against this and will try to prioritize a fix. In the meanwhile, you can use the, “Jump to last edit location”, shortcut (
Ctrl + Q) to jump to where you were editing last – this is a bit thrown off by the added import though, so you will have to jump down a line.
The Save-all bug has already been fixed and will be available in the next release, definitely another action that breaks the flow, that we’re glad is already fixed.
We have a release going out with both these fixes next week, but have already put out a pre-release with the fixes. If you have the time & inclination, would be great if you could give it a try and confirm that the issues are really fixed for you. Even if on the pre-release stream, your build will be updated to the final build when that is released, of course.
To move to the pre-release stream, please follow these steps:
1. Add the following line to
2. Restart Eclipse
3. An update will be detected as shown bottom left — when the update is applied, click the Restart icon to reload Eclipse with the prerelease version of CodeMix
Have a great weekend!
I’m using the webclipse IDE – i think i recall the update only being avaialable for the plugin as i can’t get it to update.
Hi i went and downloaded eclipse and installed the plugin.
So far so good, the issues have been fixed, imports get added without jumping to the top and save all remains on the focused page.
Great work, thanks!
