Trying to install it on Neon and I get this error message:

No repository found at http : / /
(Introduced spaces to get past the censors at Eclipse)

Looks like a great tool, but if it won't install...

I am using Eclipse Mars. When I try to install it from marketplace it say repository not found at this link. I have tried by dragging the install button and also searching in market place. Both methods give me the same problem.

I just installed and started using today. It seems pretty good. It's doing the job for searches. It says "Find/Replace Bar" but I don't see a way to do a replace with it, only find. Am I missing something?

My only gripe and suggestion would be that the text window for the find text is too small. For long search terms, you can't read it all. There's plenty of room to make it larger.

There are quite a few problems:
- the bar's height is too important even when reduced at minimum level
- when Eclipse starts, the bar takes all the height it can, leaving you to manually resize it
- messes badly with eclipse view management: in a few cases I had moved some view by mistakes and I had no other choices than restart eclipse to restore the layout (even perspective reset would not work)

But the worse of all is that when you uninstall it, even if "override find dialog" is unchecked when you uninstall, it disables the find dialog. Resetting key bindings does not help (the key binding still shows up).

Meaning, I had to reinstall it to be able to search. I can't uninstall this thing short of redoing my whole eclipse setup.

It's very obvious it does not uninstall properly: in one case, while messing with the shortcuts I managed to make ctrl+f show a windows which proposed two options, one of them "display the find bar" (or something like this). This, after uninstalling find bar.

Fixes would be appreciated, as the plug-in would be otherwise quite handy.

Sorry to hear you ran into so many issues. I will try to see what is going on. Resetting perspectives did the trick for me most of the time.
