Hi,

This is helpful - thanks for creating the plugin. If possible, it would be nice if it remembered the recently closed files between sessions. When I start Eclipse the recent files list in the File/Recent Files menu shows the recently closed files from before, while this plugin starts with an empty list each time. It would require this plugin to persist its list of recently closed files so they could be reloaded at startup.

Hi,

gave Recent Editors a try. Unfortunately the windows show up is always empty. No entry is recent closed list

MacOS: 10.15.6
Eclipse: Version: 2020-06 (4.16.0), Build id: 20200615-1200

Any hints what to do?
