I think the topic describes my problem..but here's some additional..
I loose all my "view panes" if I happen to double click on a source file in the C perspective, the File I did this to goes full screen, which would be OK, but problem is I can't get back to seeing all the view panes I set up. I can click the small icons on the left get most of the pains I like back, but I have not found a reproducible way to get the Console pane stuck back at the bottom where I like it..I can bring it up by selecting from Window>show View, but it floats on top, and as soon as I click outside of it, it's gone.
Obviously I'm just a beginner, and it's probably something simple, but it's frustrating..
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
