Getting the plugin which defines an extension point.

If you are like me you still use the Search dialog for plugins to find the definition plugin of an extension point.

I just realized that the Open Plugin Artifact Dialog (Ctrl+Shift+A) allows much faster access.

I also added the shortcut and a description to my Eclipse Source Code – Tutorial.

    Just a minor addition: If you currently are in the plug-in manifest editor and already have extensions contributed, you can also use the context menu to “Find Declaration”.

    But I assume you are aware of that.
