Eclipse variable value view scroll

KPax asked
Is there any way to keep Eclipse variable value view scroll always on the bottom i.e. on the last entry instead of automatically scroling it to the top every time when the variable (in this case buffer content) refreshes?

I would like it to stay this way:

instead of scrolling up to top like this:

Hmmm...that was identified waaay back in 2003:


then, it's back in 2014:


I am thinking that the bug is back in town.  What version of Eclipse are you using?


Unfortunately I work in remote and I MUST use:

Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers.
Version: Indigo Service Release 1
Build id: 20110916-0149

as this is setup by employer.

I can't think of anything that you can do with the view configuration to keep that from happening.  From what I can tell, it is not supposed to work that way, and since you are forced to use an older IDE, it will more than likely stay that way.  These are the times that drive me crazy, when I am forced to live with something.

I know there is someone out that who knows more about the Eclipse IDE than I do.  Maybe you will be lucky enough to find someone who knows the "magic".
