Wolfram Workbench source editor and corrupted file

Hello, I have a simple question.

I have an important Mathematica Notebook (.nb) file which became corrupted. 
The end of it is missing (incomplete), and I cannot seem to salvage the 
contents yet. 

I read that I could use the Source Editor in Wolfram-Workbench to 
examine the corrupted file, and make usable the "complete" parts which
are still there. 

However, it is not apparent how to "see" (view/edit) the NoteBook file
in Workbench. I have imported it, but I cannot see it...I just see a
4-line long bit.  

But using a text editor I see that there are really thousands of lines.

My question is:  how can I view and edit the nb file, so as to "fix" it
to make parts of it usable again? 

Maybe vim or Notepad+ or the like are preferable to the WW SourceEditor? 

Thank you for any info or assistance,
