With so many preferences in the Eclipse Editor, I am not sure if this is the intended behaviour - When I click on one of the methods or fields, in the outline view, I see ONLY that method/field and nothing else in the editor window. If I do a Find for instance, its scope is limited to that method/field I've selected in the outline view. I know it was not doing this earlier. Where do I go to remove this option/preference ?

I don't remember. When I went to Eclipse 3, I stopped having that problem, but whether that means they no longer support that or I just managed to shut it off, I don't know.

It's fine if you want a Smalltalk-style edit view, but for Java it's rather confining.

I belive that is a feature you can turn on or off. I know MS VB editor has it.
