Outline and bookmarks not working in eclipse IDE

When working in the IDE, the contents of my Outline view keep disappearing, with nothing inside the window. It's a pretty important feature of an IDE, so it's pretty annoying.


I've been trying to use Bookmarks as a workaround, but regularly after a I save, my booksmarks all get cleared!


So there's a clearly bugs with both the Outline and Bookmarks in eclipse, at least with the IDE.


Has anyone else had this problem?  Anyone know how to solve it? 


It's a pain to navigate code using line numbers and 'Find' alone.







Try to refresh the project.


Yea, thanks, tried that.


I think it's because I have an @RemoteAction method in there, which is in Summer 11 (API v22) and the IDE only supports Winter 11 (API v20). Because it's working for other classes that don't have any @RemoteAction methods. I don't know if there's a log I can check somewhere to see if it's breaking the Outline parser, but I suspect that's thte cause.




This is still a problem with the new Winter '12 release. 


You also can't create Apex classes with v23 - the max API it lets you select is v20.
