Hello,
This is a very minor problem but seems to irk me. I am not able to find a workaround this. In my J2EE perspective, I am trying to work on a file and when I double click it in the navigator pane, it opens on the right side but does not show on the navigator pane. So, it hard for me to go bak whjen I work with many files to manually go and search for the file in the navigator.
Thanks
Vidya Ram

Vidya,
Have you clicked the navigator icon with the two arrows to link the navigator view to the main display?

When the cursor is inside the file (source), you can right click --- Show In -- Navigator . This will highlight the currently opened file in the left navigator panel.

Regards,
Mujeebur Rahman
