Hi all,
in my product configuration I've set the about text field in the product configuration file to the value &aboutText and I've placed a file called plugin.properties in the root directory of the defining plugin. In such file I've inserted the aboutText property to a text string, but when I launch the product and bring up the about dialog, instead of the text substitution I see the property name (aboutText).
Am I doing something wrong?

I have a similar setup except I have '%productBlurb' (without the quotes) in the .product file.
   <aboutInfo>
      <image path="/com.lesliesoftware.wizardsfamiliar/about.gif"/>
      <text>
         %productBlurb
      </text>
   </aboutInfo>

Uhm...in the feature.xml file I've got the following:

<description url="http://www.mysite.com">
      %aboutText
   </description>


while in the plugin.xml configuration file I've got:

<property
               name="aboutText"
               value="%aboutText">
         </property>


and after that I've got the property value:

<property
               name="aboutText"
               value="blah blah">
         </property>


And finally in the product configuration file I've got:

<aboutInfo>
      <image path="/HRPM-RCP-git/img/logo_about.png"/>
      <text>
         %aboutText
      </text>
   </aboutInfo>


that is mapped to the aboutText property of the plugin.properties:

aboutText=\n\nMy Application\n


so it looks ok to me, should I remove the other aboutText properties in the plugin and feature files?
