Eclipse Window Builder freezes whenever I try to add a component

Hello Code Ranchers,

I've got a real doosey for you tonight!

I've been working on the back end of my java swing program for a while. Since I've been away from window builder for so long (window builder in eclipse to edit swing GUI), something must have changed between then and now. Unfortunately, it's been so long that I don't remember my eclipse version when everything last worked well (~6 months ago). Anyway, when I try to add any component, I get the spinning wheel and eclipse stops responding. I have no errors.

To be specific; I select an object from the pallet, then I hover over my GUI. When the object transparency appears over the GUI, indicating the planned location, I select that location. The spinning wheel starts and never stops.

I'm running MacOS 10.15.6, eclipse 2019-12.

I've tried increasing the available memory with this:

I thought this may have helped at first, but it definitely has not.

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed. I literally can't add any components right now. I'm slowly dying inside.

You showed up just in time for the waffles! And this tiny ad:
