Some of you may have experienced unstable performance of Eclipse Neon on Mac OS 10.13 and 10.14. It is prone to crash during certain text editor operations (especially, selecting a block of text with the mouse), as well as upon entry to debug.
I have had some luck remedying these crashes by deleting the eclipse cache when the crashes begin to happen.
1. Quit Eclipse.
2. Delete directory “~/Library/Caches/org.eclipse.platform.ide”
I’d be curious to know if this helps any of you.
