Description Steve Baker 2005-06-25 22:31:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Hitting ctrl-F6 should cycle through currently open files and ctrl-F7 should cycle through all active views. The list is ordered by most recently used.

The cycle popup displays but doesn't do anything. There is a flicker with each keypress so there might be some kind of focus problem. 

This is an important feature to me since I have too many files open for the editor tabs to be useful. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Eclipse
2. Open multiple files
3. hit ctrl-F6
3. hit ctrl-F6 again
3. stab ctrl-F6 rapidly with increasing frustration

Actual Results:  File switcher window displays but doesn't cycle though files. Switcher flickers with each ctrl-F6

Expected Results:  ctrl-F6 cycles through each file and selecting a file will make it active in the editor view. ctrl-shift-F6 will cycle in reverse order.

Additional info:

Window manager is metacity

I am pretty sure this is this upstream bug which is fixed in 3.1RC1 and higher:

Comment 2 Steve Baker 2005-06-26 00:44:17 UTC
Sounds like this might be the issue. Any idea when this will be pushed to FC4?

Comment 3 Jeff Pound 2005-06-27 14:25:55 UTC
FC4 will have an eclipse update when 3.1 final is released.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-02 15:23:37 UTC
We will have an Eclipse 3.1.1 update for FC4 hopefully today.
