Whenever i roll the mouse over the method or class name the tool tip is not shown completly in eclipse.
That is, if i have:

import java.awt.BorderLayout;

and  i roll over in the mouse in java persceptive. It just shows:

 java.awt.BorderLayout
Press F2 to focus.

If i press F2 nothing new comes up. It is said that the description of the class should occur.

What should i do? I am using Eclipse 3.0(recent version) with JDK 1.5 RC on WinXP.
I didn't find any solution to this in eclipse website.

You should set preferences in the Window->Preferences->Editor->Hovers

Hovers do not work where you import, but where you deploy the class.

;JOOP!
