Eclipse 3.4: Search Menu is grayed Out

OK i think this is bug, In Eclipse 3.4.1 on Mac OS X i been seeing the search menu active then hidden or grayed out and I'm unable to find anything about it on the web.

That said, I'm able to get the search dialog to show up using the keyboard ^H (Control H) displays the search dialog and i can preform a search all is happy... very strange


  1. I know this blog entry is over a year old, but I thought I'd say thanks for the ctrl-h workaround. I had the same issue in Windows.

  2. I'll ditto that. Thanks. Worked in Ubuntu too.

  3. I've got a much better fix - Use a decent IDE :)
