In Eclipse's Android plugin, I'm trying to create a new project, however the window won't let me scroll down. Is there a way to fix this? Note the image attached.

pressing tab doesn't work? – Keyhan Asghari Mar 11 '12 at 17:28
No it doesn't : [. I think it puts the cursor in the box, but the box is still not visible – Matthew Haworth Mar 11 '12 at 17:29
updating eclipse or android may help. – Keyhan Asghari Mar 11 '12 at 17:33

Try disabling the scroll overlay. Eclipse based products still doesn't know how to deal with this relatively new feature of Ubuntu.
Add the following before the eclipse command. Run it by invoking LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 eclipse.

From developing own RCP applications I've recognized, that the preference dialog sometimes behaves in a strange way (the calculated size does not match the real one), but at least I'm able to scroll and so on. Have you ever tried to simply resize the window?

BTW: Which version of the tool do you use? My "ne Android Project" wizard looks a little bit different (the target has to be defined on a separate page)
