Eclipse Task

In Eclipse, Task will search TODO, FIXME... in ALL projects. This is not what I want. I want it just show TASK belonging to the opening project.

Do we have a way to customize it ?

The task view shows stuff only for currently open projects. Close all other projects to filter by project

Or click the little down arrow in the top right part of the tasks view and choose configure contents. You can then choose your configuration and select "on selected element and its children". This will show the TODOs for the project you have currently selected.

For all open projects, Maneesh's suggestion is better. I find it more convenient to customize further.
