Due to personal interest, I installed Android SDK and emulator on my machine. Now, since I am a programmer, I am most interested in actually developing applications for Android. Hence, I installed Eclipse ADT plug-in.

I created a sample project, and went to edit resources. I failed miserably. I couldn’t type in the window, couldn’t edit and couldn’t save a resource. Since I use Eclipse for other things as well, I have other plug-ins installed as well, e.g. Subclipse and EclipseMercurial.

This is where you are going to shoot yourself in the foot. Much like I have unfortunately. ADT and Subclipse apparently don’t mix. If you want to have Subclipse for other projects, you are left with no other option but to install another eclipse instance for Android development.

I did that and experience no problems whatsoever afterwards.
