[epp-dev] Promote Quick Access Ctrl+3 via the EPP?

Hi,

Brian recently published info on this list, how to display important
information on your EPP welcome page. See
https://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/epp-dev/msg03977.html

I regular work with or do training sessions with groups of Eclipse IDE
users. I typically ask new clients, if they are aware of the "Quick
Access" shortcut and functionality. Unfortunately the majority of them
are not aware of "Quick Access". I have also met several former
Eclipse users, which told me that they prefer IntelliJ over Eclipse
because of that feature. They thought this is not available in
Eclipse. IntelliJ puts this functionality under Main Menu | Search |
Find Action (Ctrl+Shift+A) in IntelliJ

I plan to add our Quick Access also to the Search menu to help Eclipse
users to discover it via
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=491181 but maybe you
could promote this shortcut / functionality on your welcome page. IMHO
this functionality is one of our gems in the IDE and deserves
promotion.

Best regards, Lars
