    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) Shortcuts ?cntl+r, j, l?
    not available if 'z/OS Projects' view is closed.
    
    APAR Error Description
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.0.3.2.
    The shortcuts to Retrieve Dataset ?cntl + r?, Retrieve jobs
    ?cntl + j?, Locate member ?cntl + l? are not available when
    the 'z/OS Projects' view is not open in the 'z/OS Projects'
    perspective.
    
    Re-creation steps for 'Locate member ?cntl+l?':
    
    . Start from a new workspace,
    . create a new connection
    . unfold the MVS file tree in the RSE View,
    . right click on one of the PDS,
    
     shortcut ?cntl+l? is visible in front of the 'Locate member'
    action. It is active and working.
    
    . Close the 'z/OS Project' view,
    . close and restart RDz,
    . Connect to the host,
    . unfold the MVS file tree
    . right click on one of the PDS,
    
    You can see the Locate action, but there is not the ?ctrl+l?
    mention at the end of the line.
    Moreover, hitting ?ctrl + l? on the keyboard does not open the
    'Locate Member' wizard.

Problem conclusion

    workbench was started without the 'z/OS Projects' view.
