Eclipse / CFBuilder - Keep Views Open

This is driving me nuts..

I have started working on CFBuilder (Eclipse based IDE), and so far love it.. but one frustration is when I open a view, such as Navigator or Dataview, then click in the editor to do some coding, the views close.. Sometimes I need to view the contents of the views while coding..

I have looked all through Preferences, search Google but can't find any option or mention of this.

Help!!!

Many Thanks

Jason

(not for points ...)

Hi Jason, you might also ask on adobe's CFBuilder community forum too.  I say that only  because I don't know how many CFBuilder gurus there are in the CF Zones. I still use CFEclipse myself :).

Best of Luck!

Honestly I haven't tried CFBuilder.  I was already using CFEclipse when it came out.  Since adobe had released some nice extensions for CFEclipse/CF8 I didn't care to switch.

From what I understand the two are similar. As a commercial IDE I'd expect CFBuilder might have a few more features.  Though there is some debate about that :)

Found my problem with the views closing..

I had minimized the views.. this allows me to open the view, but it minimizes again when I take focus off it.  If I 'restore' the view, it opens and stays open.. To restore the view I just needed to click on the panes button just above each view.
