Summary0015546: cannot add plugins to some of the menus
Descriptioni manage to add plugins to "insert" and "extras", but i cannot add them -- as an example -- to "help".

i've tried to track PluginManager::setupPluginActions and MenuManager::addMenuItemStringAfter but i could not figure out what could be wrong.

adding a pluing in help, after tooltips get's into addMenuItemStringAfter(), but the action does not how up in the menus.

this is my current setup for the menu: = "ActionSearch";
    // Action text for menu, including accel
    m_actionInfo.text = tr("&Action Search"); = "Help";
    m_actionInfo.menuAfterName = "Tooltips";
    m_actionInfo.enabledOnStartup = false;
    m_actionInfo.needsNumObjects = -1;
TagsNo tags attached.

Try to add following lines at the end of PluginManager::setupPluginActions(ScribusMainWindow *mw):
mw->scrMenuMgr->addMenuItemStringstoMenuBar("Help", mw->scrActions);

Fixed. One important information tho, the string to use for m_actionInfo.menuAfterName is not the English string, but the internal name of the menu. So in your case, the proper code should not be:
m_actionInfo.menuAfterName = "Tooltips";
m_actionInfo.menuAfterName = "helpTooltips";
See ActionManager::initHelpMenuActions()

ok, thanks!

it was not practical yet for me to test the lines above, since i'm in the middle of code changes and i did not want to change branch (nor commit).
i will test it today or tomorrow!
