      Description

      This is a small 'general' purpose feature in the same category as Eclipse QuickSearch.

      I.e. make slight improvement to general Eclipse user experience.

      The itch this one is supposed to address is the annoyance of having errors because of 'Resource is out of synch' problems.

      There are some autorefresh options Eclipse now offers but they don't work very well.

      Also, manually refreshing all projects in the workspace is a bit difficult because you have to select all the projects you want to refresh. Depending on how the workspace is organized and if you have closed some projects you have to 'precision select' only the open projects across all workingsets...

      A 'one click' refresh all would be convenient.
