Hello,

I'm wondering if there is any way to control the default settings for the
Help->Search tab without changing any Java code. I would like to control
the
default values for the "Show result categories" and "Show result
descriptions"
buttons, so that these are set a particular way when the end-user first
uses the help system.

I noticed that when I change the values of these buttons in the UI, a file
containing something like the following

<xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8">
<section name="Workbench">
<item key="show-categories" value="false"/>
<item key="no-description" value="false"/>
</section>

is written as

Workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.help.ui/dialog_sett ings.xml

My first instinct was to add the following to our plugin_customization.ini
file:

org.eclipse.help.ui/Workbench/show-categories=false
org.eclipse.help.ui/Workbench/no-description=false

but to no avail. (I also tried a couple of variations on this string,
trying to find the right identifier by hit-or-miss. I can't seem to find
any documentation describing how to determine the identifier for a
particular property.)

So: Is this possible, or would specifying the default values of those
buttons require changes to Java code? If it is possible, I'd love to learn
how to find the correct identifier strings.

Thanks for any help,
Doug Dirks
