That's true. It's not my current situation, but just the same it's pretty independent. Also, just figured I should say this next part. I'm not trying to be a PITA, just trying to point things out that I feel make Subclipse harder to use and would improve it usability and intuitiveness. That said, my opinion is what it's worth :-)

Ok. Then this is likely an Eclipse limitation. From my perspective I can edit the files, delete them, etc. but I just cannot get Subclipse features to work on them. I was expecting that since some Eclipse operations were possible that Subclipse operations would be possible too.

FWIW - I've noticed that creating a new Linked Folder does not update a new folder in the filesystem for me. Eclipse just updates .project to track the link name and destination folder. I was hoping that Subclipse could query Eclipse for a list of links+fslocations in the Project and just *do the right thing*, or something similar.

Thanks for the link. "it is strongly suggested that repository providers ignore all linked resources". Ugh. Not quite the most user-friendly option to ignore linked resources IMO, but appears to sidestep many technical issues. It's not high-prio for me so I'll drop it. Just the same, if Subclipse can find a clever solution it'd be a cool feature, IMO.
