How can I open ECL in stable builder windows?

Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

Opening a file by double clicking opens it in an edit window and renames the file to builder_xxxx.ecl where xxxx is some number. I have to right click the file and use the context menu to open it in a builder.

At this point, I can edit and save just fine. But if I close the IDE or it crashes and I still have that builder window open, the builder window will lose its relationship with the original file I was editing. When I open ECL, edit it, and try to save again I get this a Save As dialog box. To get around this, I have to:

• re-open the original file in another builder or edit window
• copy the entire thing and paste it into the re-opened file
• save it
• close the original builder window

Is there a way to do the following:
1. Have ecl files open in builder windows by default?
2. Preserve the relationship between a builder window and the file it has open between ECL sessions?

I'd post a word doc or pictures if that helps, but I get a message saying they are not allowed on this forum. I hope I've provided enough info.

Thanks.

Richard,

What version of the IDE are you using and what version of the environment are you attaching to?
