Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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 ( 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 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
