JJ_2020JJ_2020 IDE and referenced packages

I'm new to using the IDE and Eclipse and I'm running into an issue. I'm trying to create a project that is connected to an org with a large number of managed packages installed. I want to look only at 3 classes, so I select only these three classes, however the IDE proceeds to download the contents of all "referenced packages", which is not what I want, and takes an extremely long time.


For some reason these do not appear in the project contents, but if I navigate to the workspace folder, the xml files for all referenced packages are clearly visible.


I'm finding this behaviour a bit strange, is there some way to avoid it? I.e. just download the classes I ask for?


I am using the standalone installer version, 64 bit, version 19


Did you ever get a response on this?  The length of time it takes to do a simple save or refresh makes it very difficult to get things done.


I got the same issue!

All managed packages are downloaded and i would like to turn this off.

Is this possible?
