I've implemented a custom search for my eclipse rcp project.
But I don't know how to make this search reachable via the main menu
(Search -> Custom search...)
I've read that there is a bug which doesn't allow you to add a menu item to the existing ones. So can somebody give me a hint how to fix this?

thanks for your help

Hi Peter,

Use the plugin-spy to see the id of the Search menu (ALT+SHIFT+F2) then use
the menus extension point to contribute to that menu. There is no bug.

Best regards,
