What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I asked a question on SO about a UI issue I am experiencing in Eclipse: Eclipse Juno Editors side by side gives white bar

It was closed as "off topic" but I do not think it is off topic. The SO FAQ (http://stackoverflow.com/faq) covers questions asked about programming tools, which is what I am doing.

We feel the best Stack Overflow questions have a bit of source code in them, but if your question generally covers... software tools commonly used by programmers ... then you’re in the right place to ask your question!

Further, I found the answer and would like to put it as an answer so that anyone else who experiences the same issue will know what to do. I added more detail to try and make it more useful.

Now delete this post before a bunch of other meta users go in and re-close it! – Adam Rackis Feb 7 '13 at 22:53
Thanks for that. @Adam Rackis - should I really delete this question? My sarcasm meter may be broken atm... :) – Robert Mark Bram Feb 7 '13 at 23:06
@Robert - nah. I was only half serious. I think your question should be safe. – Adam Rackis Feb 7 '13 at 23:07
Wouldn't the more appropriate place for this be the eclipse bug tracker? Looks to me like it's at best going to solicit "me too" answers. If someone has a patch eclipse.org is the place to disseminate it. – Flexo Feb 7 '13 at 23:32
From your answer, the question is "too localized" – casperOne Feb 7 '13 at 23:43
