find and replace
Did you add a new find and replace popup instead of the standard eclipse dialog for Java editors?
If so how can I disable it?
Also are there any other changes to standard functionality?
If there is can you add a preferences pane to be able to disable it.
With this release I selected to use the classic Eclipse.
Paul, DevStyle is a stand-alone plug-in for eclipse though it can be included with Webclipse when that is installed. However, I can see that this particular update could have been confusing, going from Darkest Dark to DevStyle with Darkest Dark. You should have been notified of the new facilities after restarting following the update but that would probably be easy to miss. Hopefully this will not be an issue in future. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I found it when I updated another eclipse installation.
It was confusing as the setting is under DevStyle. As a user we don't know the names all the features provided in webclipse.
Maybe a link to that from the WebClipse settings. Plus links to all the other custom webclipse plugin settings groups.
Paul, yes , we added the inline find as a possibly smoother way, during editing, to find text in the file being edited. This is part of the DevStyle plugin, formerly known as Darkest Dark. There are two ways to get back to the regular pop-up dialog, apart from selecting the Find/Replace menu item from the Edit menu. Either use the Ctrl+F key combination a second time (the first time brings up the inline find, Ctrl+F again immediately removes the inline find and brings up the regular eclipse pop-up). Or, to switch it off altogether, go to Window->Preferences->DevStyle and deselect the "Use the Inline Search" option then click OK.
If you've selected to use the classic Eclipse startup, then you should see no other alterations to standard eclipse functionality.
If possible, could you let us know what you don't like about the inline search or the DevStyle startup experience? We're always keen to get feedback from our customers to help us improve our offerings.
