For saving the toolbar, it works for me when do a 'Save Perspective As...'
I usually name it the same as whatever the perspective I started was and
replace the existing perspective.

For changing the debug perspective, that's a little more involved. I've
done it before, but more recently I just customize the default and 'Save
Perspective As...' If I recall correctly:
- Under preferences, expand Run/Debug.
- Select Perspectives.
- Select the Application Type from the list on the right
(I don't remember which one a SEP uses).
--- Select your custom debug perspective under Modes/Perspectives
to further to the right.
-- I believe you need to expand the Application Type on the list and

activated when I started debugging so I stopped using different
perspectives than the installed defaults.
Thanks, Matt

How do I save my toolbar? I rearrange the groups of buttons the way I
want, but they never seem to stay that way.
