There is none. Workbench is all about writing packages, that is *.m
files, so an inline editor is only available for these, notebook files
(*.nb) will always be opened with Mathematica (or in an unreadable form
in a regular inline text-editor).

Of course it would be nice if you could use all the advantages of the
workbench when working with notebooks, too, but this would be much more
effort to implement than for the *.m files and has not been done AFAIK.
