I searched the forum and Google for the answer first, with no luck. So sorry if this is a repeat question.

Years ago I knew of a tool in Eclipse (I think it was built-in, but might have been a plugin I installed) that would allow you to turn it on and then click on any menu item/view/editor/etc. When you clicked on the item, it would bring up a dialog telling you what extension point(s) that item implemented.

Could someone please direct me to this tool?

Thanks!

Mat

It sounds like you are talking about plugin spy. Alt-Shift-F1 brings up
an outline of the views and Alt-Shift-F2 allows you to find out who
contributes menu items.
