Our RCP application displays the Preference and About menu options at the Mac location under our "App Name" top left menu bar item and also under Window and Help respectively.

Googling didn't bring any interesting results.

Has anybody ever seen this? Or as any clue to guide me.

Thanks
Alain

There is code in org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.renderers.swt.cocoa's org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench.renderers.swt.cocoa.CocoaUIHandler that removes any occurrences of the Window > Preference and Help > About on menu changes and new shells being opened. Check and see if the redirectHandledMenuItems() method is being triggered.

Thanks Brian for the great pointer.

In debugging I see that the code is called but the problem in that the element id that I get are "preferences" and "about" and the expected values are "org.eclipse.ui.window.preferences" and "org.eclipse.ui.help.aboutAction" which don't really match. BTW all the element ids that I see are single word and never full ids.

Any more clue from this point?

Thanks
Alain

Check your ActionBarAdvisor: it's responsible for filling in the menu items, and my guess is that your advisor is adding those items.

If you're generating these programmatically, your code should use the command constants in IWorkbenchCommandConstants (specifically HELP_ABOUT and WINDOW_PREFERENCES).
