Eclipse Toolkit questions

1. Is there any documentation in addition to what I've found on the Apex Wiki (just one page, at
2. I don't see how to create a new Apex code package. If I right-click on the SControls folder I get a menu item for Apex/New SControl, but no such luck with the Packages folder.
3. This really has to do with SControls, but I'll ask here. The Merge Field wizard is missing some important things, most notably the API and SControl (not $SControl) families. Can these be added?
4. There is a code template for a new SControl. If/when I am able to create a new Apex code package, will I be able to create my own template? Maybe this is obvious, but I'm not familiar with that side of Eclipse, so some guidance would be appreciated.
p.s. Dave: I've watched your Eclipse plug-in evolve over the last year or so. Thank you for taking this on--it's a great tool!
1. No. The wiki is your best source of information for now anyway.

2. Try new -> other -> Apex

3. Please post that question here:

4. Not sure what you mean by template, the process asks for a package name but that's it. Packages are pretty loosely defined at this point.

For the eclipse toolkit, you can create anything using File/New/Other and then looking for the apex category.  The new SControl menu item is a legacy from the old version where there was only one kind of thing you code create.  Instead of cluttering the shortcut menu, I decided to leave the wizards in the wizard lists.
