I think designer is great, but it crashes and then I can not even get into
the Workspace.

Although the 2.X version seems to crash less often, I have no idea how to
get back any of the code that has been done.

I get an error to "See the log file ....\.metadata\.log

The file is a java stack trace like:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui.workbench 4 2 2006-02-14 08:31:28.187
!MESSAGE Problems occurred when invoking code from plug-in:
com.novell.designer.idm.outlineview.ModelerOutline Page.getStateFileToSaveTo(ModelerOutlinePage.java: 1048)

So now what?

Help Please.
