I just got a new laptop and trying to get Eclipse up and running again. When I go to create a new project and enter my credentials and click Next, it says fetching and then I get this screen. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Try manually putting in a package.xml and reload your project contents from the server. This may fix itself. Also, file an issue against the open source project for Force.com IDE. github.com/forcedotcom/idecore/issues – pchittum Oct 13 '15 at 18:49
  • If I just click Finish, it downloads what is normally the first radial button, Classes, Components, Pages, Static Resources and Triggers. I tried to create another project and same issue. – john Oct 13 '15 at 19:51
  • Is that a limitation of Eclipse itself? Or something in the plugin? Please still file the issue in GitHub. – pchittum Oct 14 '15 at 6:04

This has something to do with large fonts and the UI for that dialog not dynamically sizing.

You can do two things (for now): 1) maximize that window 2) reduce your font size


Can you please share the Eclipse, Force.com IDE and Java version using on your machine.

If you are using the Windows OS, then try with the following combinations: Eclipse Version Juno , Force.com IDE Version 33.0, Java Version 8.

If you are using MAC then Try Eclipse Version Kepler.
