I have gotten Visual Editor 1.2 to run on Eclipse 3.2 on my PPC 10.4.8 but it is buggy. Swing components don't appear in the preview view, you cannot resize or move components, etc. However, the code generated looks fine and you can manually hand code but then that sort of defeats the purpose of a "visual" editor, doesn't it. Guess it's a reason to get a Intel Mac and dual-boot Windoze. Forwarded message: Hi all, I'd like to try switching to Eclipse for my Java development. Eclipse runs fine so far... but I've been trying to get the Visual Editor tool to work properly, and it won't seem to work. I install the files (Visual Editor runtime 1.2 from <http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ve/ downloads/drops/R-1.2-200606280938/index.html>, but the features do not show up in Eclipse. The installation instructions suggested I do a clean restart (./eclipse -clean) but this didn't help. It has been very difficult to figure out the current state of the Visual Editor project -- there doesn't seem to be a lot of recent information on it, and a lot of the information is contradictory. For example, the FAQ clearly states that Mac OS is not supported, but there is a Mac OS runtime available for download (and a Bugzilla entry stating that 1.2 is Mac compatible). I am guessing that it IS supported on Mac OS, but now that the Visual Editor project is stable, the documentation is not being maintained very well. So, I guess this question is a 2-parter: (#1), can anyone help me get Visual Editor running on Eclipse on my Mac (10.4.8, Java 5, Intel iMac), and (#2) can anyone help illuminate the current state of Visual Editor on Mac OS?
